Four Burgess Brothers on same rugby team and in the surf

We've become big fans of the rugby playing Burgess Brothers since George Burgess took nude selfies that wound up on Twitter. It was then that we discovered George has three other rugby-playing brothers --his twin brother Thomas, and Luke and Sam -- who look as good as he does.

The four, originally from  England, are now playing for the South Sydney Rabbitohs of Australia's National Rugby League, a team co-owned by actor Russell Crowe. Last month, they took the field together, the first time four brothers played on the same team in the league in 103 years.

"It is incredible, if someone had told me that five years ago, I wouldn't have believed them," Luke told Reuters. "I think for a start, for all four of us to play professionally is pretty cool, and then to play in the same game in the same team is massive and definitely something we'll talk about at the end of the year over a beer."

One awesome Aussie tradition are recovery sessions, where the players frolic in the surf after practice. It was here we got to see the Burgess Brothers in swimsuits, a nice bonus.
