England Coach Wayne Bennett has spoken about his enjoyment working with the Burgess brothers during the Englishmen’s campaign at the Four Nations tournament.
Facing a do-or-die game against the Australians this Monday morning AEDST, Bennett spoke to the Rugby League media about his time with the Burgess brothers, his relationship with the England players, and his ability to tell twins George and Thomas apart.
“I’m enjoying that; it’s really good,” Bennett said when asked about working alongside England captain and Rabbitohs forward Sam.
“Sam’s great and his brothers are wonderful.
“I’ve got a really good squad of guys here. I couldn’t be more pleased with them actually.
“I’ve had a really enjoyable month with them. It’s been really good.
Bennett admitted was still none-the-wiser about which twin was George and which was Thomas.
“Not yet,” Bennett said with a wry grin when asked about telling difference between the two giant front-rowers.
“I take a marker pen with me to training and put an ‘X’ on one of their heads. That’s how I do it.”
Can you tell the difference?
