Three Brothers in the same 1st Grade side

Yesterday for the first time since 1937/38, three brothers played in the same ACT 1st Grade side. Jason, Benji and Tim Floros played for Tuggeranong Valley against Ginninderra in their 18 run victory.
Benji and Tim have played for the ACT but have not played in the same side together. Jason has come back to play 1st Grade for Tuggeranong Valley after played First-Class and List A cricket for Queensland. He has yet to play a senior match for the ACT despite playing Youth Cricket for the ACT and representing the Australia Under 19 side.
In 1937/38, Les, Bede and Francis Reardon played together for Hall during that season. Additionally, they all played for the ACT during the Country Week competition in Sydney that season as well.
In 1922/23 for Ainslie, four Maloney brothers – William, Valentine, Edward and Lisle all played together in matches that season. Their cousins John and Robert also played for the side in the same season.
The family did better in 1925/26 with five Maloney brothers played in the same side. The four brothers were joined by their youngest brother Harry in the side who made his debut at 15 years of age.
Four of the Maloney brothers played for the ACT, only Valentine did not play for the Territory and only three brothers played for the Territory at the same time.
