    Brother's Ian and Tony Greig were Test cricketers of varying degrees of merit.
    Tim and Tom Gullikson were tennis playing twins, both a bit below top class but an excellent doubles partnership. Also in tennis Helena Sukova and Cyril Suk. Tracy Austin and her brother John won the Mixed Doubles at Wimbledon in 1980.
    Wayne Rooney has a brother somewhere hacking around the lower leagues.

    The Spinks bros; Leon & Michael? Double Olympic gold medallists in 1976 (Leon light-heavyweight & Michael middleweight) & both held versions of the world heavyweight title.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    meh, i mentioned the chappells, and then burgey went on to whine why the chappels hadn't been mentioned. They were ****s like the Nevilles I reckon, which is why we don't want to effuse. The Waughs still haven't been mentioned which is good though,because they're ****s too.

    Except in the first reply to the thread.

    I'll mention WG and his Test playing brother then complain that they haven't been mentioned and then wait for someone to point out that they have.......... Or have they?...........................................
