With 3 brothers playing for the AB yesterday, I wondered what is the fewest number of breakfast tables needed for an international XV? Given very slight licence in positions I come up with 7. Here's my go:

15 Jordie Barratt
14 Rory Underwood
13 Gavin Hastings
12 Scott Hastings
11 Tony Underwood
10 Beauden Barratt
9 Ben Youngs

1 David Milne
2 Kenny Milne
3 Iain Milne
4 Same Whitelock
5 Ritchie Grey or Jonny Grey
6 Tom Youngs
7 Scott Barratt
8 Luke Whitelock

Without TOO much positional messing around, I managed to get a squad of 23 from 8 sets of brothers (there's actually another du Preez brother but couldn't quite shoehorn him in, I guess he can be the travelling reserve). All internationals, of course.

1 David Milne
2 Kenny Milne
3 Iain Milne
4 Scott Barrett
5 Jean-Luc du Preez
6 Dan du Preez
7 Henry Tuilagi
8 Billy Vunipola
9 Ben Youngs
10 Beauden Barrett
11 Alesana Tuilagi
12 Andy Tuilagi
13 Manu Tuilagi
14 Freddie Tuilagi
15 Jordie Barrett

16 Tom Youngs
17 Mako Vunipola
18 Paul Wallace
19 Vavae Tuilagi
20 David Wallace
21 George Horne
22 Peter Horne
23 Richard Wallace

3.

The Milnes in Front row, then divvy the rest up (including subs) between the seven Vyvyan Bros and the 6 Tuilagis



Unhappiness, where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can

Rather thank play T Youngs out of position, play the Dimitri Yachvili at 9 and his brother Grégoire at 6.

Isn't number 4 a different Whitelock? eye rolling smiley


Not an International team, but Bruce Gollings (whom I know from uni days) had 6 sons, one of whom was Ben, the sevens specialist. They entered as a steam in a 7s competition a few years back.
