Not since the infamous Redmond Brothers have Thamesians fielded 3 brothers in the same starting line up, but on Saturday we were delighted to have Sebastiao & Salvador join their older brother and long standing member of the club Francisco Da Cunha on the pitch for 1st XV game v Feltham.
Both brothers were a welcome addition to the backrow with Salvador bringing the bragging rights home to Lisbon having scored 2 tries. Sebastiao did try to explain to me that “I would make many try if 15 pass me” (Jonno Chandler btw)
Older brother Simao Da Cunha watched from the sidelines with great pride.
You are welcome back anytime gentlemen and feel free to bring more brothers next time.
Muito agradecido & Até breve
1st XV Captain
