Put Mitch Cornish next to his brother Nick and they look like chalk and cheese. Put them both in a Goulburn Bulldogs jersey and they're the perfect combination.
The Cornish brothers played a huge role in the Bulldogs 56-4 victory over Gungahlin Bulls scoring three tries between them and playing a part in just about every other try scored by the side.
Mitchell Cornish returned to Goulburn this year after a short stint in the NRL with the Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels and Canberra Raiders.
Cornish was ready to return home and take the chance to play along side his brother in the halves and the pair have guided the Bulldogs to second on the Canberra Raiders Cup ladder after eight rounds.
"I'm a very lucky coach to have some of the player I have in my side," Kyle said.
"Players like Nicholas and Mitchell are outstanding players, but it's what they do off the ball rather than what they do with it is what I notice. Just controlling the play around the middle, and I think Mitchell's kicking game today was something that was really important for us."
Some clever footwork and precision kicking from the brothers helped set up a first half hat trick for left winger Steven Cummins - another fresh face for the Bulldogs.
"I coached Steve when he was 13 at the Raiders, and he's been at Crookwell for a long time playing for Crook and scoring a lot of tries," Kyle said.
"So it's great to see him come back this season to first grade and I think he's scored eight tries or something already. I'm really keen to see him kick on for the second half of the year and finish strong."
It's an effort Kyle wants to see replicated across his whole squad coming into the second half of the season.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't [happy with where we sit at the moment], but I've said before, no one looks back at the halfway point and sees who was first or second, it's where you finish at the end," Kyle said.
"So it's really important that we have a bit of a break now and freshen up and look to attack the second half of the year.
"It was a really tough game, we knew coming in that Gungahlin were going to be competitive against us and they were going to put us to the test.
"I'm really happy mainly with our defense, the points scored is something we've been able to do quite consistently this season but our defensive goal was to try and keep them to really low points, so I'm really happy about that."
They've posted upset wins over the Woden Valley Rams and Queanbeyan Blues but finding consistency remains Gungahlin's biggest task following their 52-point loss.
"As a coach I couldn't ask for anything more, and that's how it's been among the group. We've got a really young side, we've just got to find that belief in ourselves," Bulls coach David Howell said.
"The effort is there, they're putting in the hard work for each other it's just those finer details. We've got to believe in ourselves, when we do the things that we can do, and we've shown that against some quality sides, then we play the style of footy we can play.
"We've troubled teams, and we troubled Goulburn, we just didn't have enough ball."
Meanwhile Woden knocked over West Belconnen 12-8 to stay in touch with the top two sides on the ladder. The Belconnen Sharks went within a whisker of scoring another win before being pipped by the Queanbeyan Kangaroos in a 22-21 defeat. The firing Tuggeranong Bushrangers were held to a 34-all draw as Ilija Cotric scored a hat trick for the Blues.
