Kaufusi brothers

Kaufusi brothers to reunite at Storm

Like the stories of other brothers who end up at the same club – think Brett and Glenn Stewart, Josh and Brett Morris, Tom and Jake Trbojevic, Jesse and Kenny Bromwich – Patrick and Felise Kaufusi are finally playing together again after initially linking at the Cowboys.

“It was big,” Patrick told NRL.com of the part Felise played in recruiting his younger sibling. “It would be awesome to play with him again – we played a couple of [under] 20s games together. It’d be great for that opportunity to learn off him again. He’s come a long way since leaving the Cows.”

“We played together a couple of times and got the opportunity to play against each other last year but we weren’t on at the same time, luckily,” Patrick said. “As he was coming off, I was coming on.”

Felise, who plays for Melbourne, added: “I think mum loved it that way. She would rather us not run into each other when we are out there.

“I guess you don’t want to see your kids going up against each other in a battle and trying to rip each other’s heads off but that is just part of the game and you just have to deal with it.”
