Sibling rivalry will cut across national borders at the Rugby World Cup. There are 13 sets of brothers among the 20 competing nations at the tournament that starts Friday, and not all are on the same side.
Salesi Ma'afu will play in the front row for Australia while Campese Ma'afu _ or, in full George David Campese Ma'afu _ will prop the Fijian scrum.
Manu Tuilagi, 21, will play for in midfield for England while his older brother Alesana Tuilagi will play for Samoa, becoming the fifth Tuilagi brother to do so. Six Tuilagi brothers have played for English club Leicester Tigers but Manu is the first to play for England.
Sailosi Tagicakibau will play for Samoa and in pool play will face brother Michael, who plays for Fiji.
