A year after a dog bite robbed Parramatta's Matt Keating of the chance to take on brother Kris for the first time in an NRL match, the two are finally ready to face off in tomorrow's clash between the Eels and Canterbury.
And in what will be a unique preparation, the brothers will get ready for the showdown while living under the same roof.
Kris suggested his brother could move from their shared home back into their parents' house for the week but Matt dismissed the idea outright.
Now they will have dinner together tonight, and even breakfast tomorrow before separating for the rest of the day ahead of the match.
''[The backyard footy matches were] pretty competitive. They always led to a bit of a scuffle so mum would come out and break us up and send us into our rooms,'' Matt said yesterday.
''But we're living together now which is going to be interesting Thursday night and Friday morning but I'll do my thing and he'll do his thing and turn up Friday night.''
