He came on as a blood replacement for Brian O'Driscoll in the 67th minute and then stayed on the field when the great man returned, taking over from brother Rob in the 72nd minute. It meant the two brothers only spent six minutes on the field together, but that was enough to write the family into the history books
Before the 17th final only four sets of brothers had won Heineken Cup winners' medals. Ulster duo Jan and Bryn Cunningham were the only other Irish pair previously in the record books from 1999, while four-times winners Toulouse provide two sets of brothers from their first success in 1996 and the third in 2005.
