I know there's the Monaghans but I thought they were too obvious, same with the Iro brothers at Wigan and I think the O'Loughlins had a spell together at Wigan as well.

Anymore?

You could have added Logan to the Tomkins brother.

Kevin & Kerrod Walters played for the same club, didn't they?

Andrew and Matthew Johns at Newcastle. They were quite good, I seem to remember.

I think Willie and Anthony Swann were at Auckland at the same time.

More recently, Brett and Josh Morris were at St George together for several years. Not just brothers - twins!

Mike and Steve O'Neill at Widnes.

Gary and Ian Van Bellen - Bradford.

Didn't about 4 of the four of the Fairbanks brother turn pro but all for different sides ?
