‘Sibling rivalry’ renews as Brothers travel to Fortress Ashgrove to face GPS

By Matt Findlay

To say there’s no love lost between Brothers and GPS would be an understatement, the two clubs’ rivalry is long, storied and fierce - in the simplest terms, they just don’t like each other much.

Brendan Gabbett is one with the unique experience of seeing both sides of that rivalry.

A club legend at Brothers, Gabbett returned to Crosby Park this year after two years coaching Jeeps, where he had the pleasure of winning an Australian Club Championship in 2019.

Even so, he’s not expecting to cop any flack from the Ashgrove crowd when the two sides add another chapter to an already-bulging Book of Feuds, to borrow the term from Russell Crowe’s South Sydney Rabbitohs.
