You and brother Neil  must have played A team together at Barrow Phil.

Also played against each other in a Challenge cup tie... you for Barrow and Neil for Askam.

Definitely Academy and probably a couple of A team games at some point I would guess, yeah I remember the Challenge cup game

Tomkins brothers, another obvious one.

Walters brothers (Brisbane/Canberra)

Sims brothers (Fiji - not sure if they played together at club level)

A bit more obscure, but im sure there were twins who played at Leeds around the mid-late 90's. Can't think of their names though. Have memories of seeing them play when Leeds had a quartered shirt design. Around the time that Francis Cummins was coming through.

The Leeds twins were David and Anthony Gibbons.

Slightly off topic but didn’t a Featherstone forward play against his son?

Jeff Grayson father played against Paul Grayson son in 1989 ish. 

Funnily enough in 1978 Featherstone had a father and son in the same team when Terry Clawson lined up with son Neil.

Was there another Pattinson brother - Malcolm who played a few games? Or was he a cousin?

There were a number of times both Bobby and Billy played in the same team, and a number of mis-identifications of some misdemeanors! Billy was the more 'mischievous' shall we say, and Bobby took the blame a few times, whilst Billy was grinning like a Cheshire Cat

Kyle & Josh White

Malcolm played at  Blackpool.

The fourth brother Stan played at Town at the same time as Billy and Bobby. 

All three taking the field together...not sure. 


***Just seen the reply above.

I'm glad someone mentioned the batch of brothers at Widnes at the same time. I remember listening to the commentary on one game on the radio in the 80s and I think they had four sets of brothers playing (at a guess Hulme, O'Neill, Myler, Eyres maybe?) plus a couple of others who had brothers elsewhere like Kurt Sorenson. I'm sure the commentator thought it was some kind of record as well.
