Imagine feeding these men. The Vunipolas are rugby royalty. First of all, the brothers Manu, Fe’Ao, Elisi represented Tonga throughout the late 80s and early 90s. Then Fe’ao’s sons broke onto the scene, choosing instead to play for England. Mako and Billy are mainstays for their chosen country and for English Premiership team Saracens.
Mako was the 2018 England Player of the Year. Both he and Billy are members of England’s 2019 World Cup squad. Who would want to come up against either of these behemoths? Finally, their uncle Manu is now the Minister of Sport in Tonga. This family lives and breathes rugby.
These men had phenomenal football careers. First of all, their father, Archie, played for 16 seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Houston Oilers, and Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately, Super Bowl success remained elusive. He never managed to get his hands on the NFL’s most coveted prize.
However, his sons have managed to achieve what he failed to. Peyton won Super Bowls with the Colts and Broncos before he retired in 2016. Then, Eli led the New York Giants to success in Super Bowl XLII and XL. To sum up, this is an incredibly talented family of elite athletes.
Fans of the Alis might not like this, but the Mayweathers are boxing’s greatest family. Spanning two generations, Roger, Floyd Sr., and Jeff all had decent professional careers. The former in particular was a top fighter, becoming a two-weight world champion. Now they’re all boxing trainers.
Of course, Floyd Jr. brought the family’s name to the next level. The five-weight champion won an incredible 15 titles and retired with an unbeaten record of 50-0. In short, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the best boxers of all-time. Love them or loathe them, this family is truly something special.
