Aviva Premiership Rugby try-scoring brothers

TomYoungsLeicsLonWel1005SB15

When Tom Youngs crashed over late on in Leicester Tigers victory over London Welsh last weekend the hooker and his brother Ben became the seventh set of siblings to score tries in the same Aviva Premiership Rugby match.

There have been 12 instances of siblings both scoring tries in a Premiership Rugby game heading right the way back to the Quinnell brothers Craig and Scott, who both went over for Richmond back in 1998 as they beat Sale 39-10.

However it took a full nine years before the next occurrence with Luke and Tom Arscott both dotting down for Bristol Rugby as they held the all-conquering Wasps to a 23-23 draw in 2007.

Next to repeat the feat were the Armitage brothers. In September 2008 they both crossed the whitewash for London Irish in a narrow 24-22 defeat at Leicester Tigers.

And they followed that up two years later by both crossing in the Exiles 23-13 comeback win over Worcester Warriors in April 2010.

In March 2011, they were at it again, both crossing in a 39-17 win over newly promoted Exeter Chiefs at the Madejski Stadium.

In between the second and third try doubles for the Armitage brothers, there were a hat-trick of occasions for Alesana Tuilagi and Manu Tuilagi.

In September and again in December 2010,  the big Samoan brothers both crossed the whitewash in wins against Leeds and Sale respectively.

Then after New Year in that same season they were at it again, this time in a February victory over Leeds who must have been sick of the sight of the bash brothers.

Then in September 2013, there were a new set of brothers to join the club. Like the Tuilagis they hailed from Samoa, one a wing and the other a centre – Ken and George Pisi of Northampton Saints against Exeter Chiefs.

Fast forward to this season and there have been three more occasions for a family celebration, first the Pisi gang were at it again in Saints victory over Sale Sharks in October.

Then just after the New Year, Billy and Mako Vunipola became the sixth set of siblings to score in the same game but they were the first pair to end up on the losing side in the game.

They both crossed in a dramatic defeat to Gloucester Rugby in January before the Youngs duo became the magnificent seventh family pairing last weekend.
