SIBLING rivalry is the name of the game in this year’s Mr and Miss Rugby competition.

Four sisters have got through to the 2012 Miss and Junior Miss Rugby competition and will be going head to head to win the title.

The Bradnick sisters - Morissa, 19, and Summer, 17 - will both be in competition against each other for the title of Miss Rugby.

And their younger sisters Darcy, 13, and Destiny, 14, will go head-to-head for Junior Miss Rugby.

The sisters entered the competition after being scouted at the Clothes Show Live in December.

And the Bradnick sisters are not the only siblings in this year’s contest.

Brother and sister Kimberly, 14, and Richard Bickerton, 24, are also both in the final of the competition.

Kimberly entered Junior Miss Rugby and Richard brought her along to the auditions but ended up entering as well.

The third set of siblings to enter the competition is Lauren, 22, and Michael Abbott, 19 and the fourth are the Underhill siblings - Gina, 15, and Vince, 21.

As well as Lauren Abbott entering alongside her brother, her boyfriend Jordan Williams 24, has also entered into the contest to win the title of Mr Rugby.

The lovebirds are hoping to make history by being the first couple to win the titles.

The siblings and couple are among 26 contestants who will be fighting it out to win the crown from last year’s winners. The current title holders are Mr Rugby Erick Giraldo, Junior Miss Rugby Georgie Clark and Miss Rugby Rebecca Morton - who is currently starring in television adverts for Special K.

Diane Slater, organiser of Mr and Miss Rugby, said: “We’ve never had so many people related in the competition.

“It’s so strange how they are all interlinked. They are competitive but it’s all friendly banter.”

Thee finals of Mr, Miss and Junior Miss Rugby will be held on Saturday March 3 at the Indian Community Centre in Edward Street, Rugby

Tickets in advance are £15 or £20 on the door.
