It's a family reunion three years in the making and both Anthony and Mark Minichiello are planning to celebrate in style when they join forces for City in Port Macquarie on Friday night.
The Minichiello brothers, who played a season together at the Roosters in 2002, have not shared the same team colours since Mark made his representative debut in the 2007 City-Country clash.
While the Titans back-rower has been a permanent fixture for City ever since, a horror run of injuries brought older brother Anthony's blossoming rep career to a screeching halt.
But with the former Golden Boot winning full-back Anthony set to earn higher honours for the first time since Game 1 of the 2007 State of Origin series after being picked on the left wing, the talented siblings are ready to make up for lost time.
"It's been three or four years since we played City together and it's been a while since we've played in a club side together, so this is a special moment," Anthony said.
Mark added: "Yeah it's great. I played alongside him in my first City jersey three years ago so it's going to be great to get out there and get another win hopefully."
While Anthony will play on the wing and Mark resides in the pack, the Country players can expect to be seeing double with the brothers likely to both feature in City's left side attack in the State of Origin trial.
"We haven't worked out what side of the field we're playing yet but hopefully we're on the same side," Anthony said.
"Mark's been playing on the left (for Gold Coast) and I've been playing on the left wing for the Roosters apart from a bit of full-back so if we play on the left side it should be a good combination."
Meanwhile, Anthony, a veteran of nine appearances for NSW, was coy when asked if he is daring to dream of a state call-up this season.
The 29-year-old is unlikely to force his way into Craig Bellamy's side for Origin I on May 26, with incumbent Kangaroos wingers Brett Morris and Jarryd Hayne both likely to be among the first players picked.
But the veteran could get a look in as the series progresses should injuries become a factor for the Blues.
"We'll just see what happens mate I'll take it as it comes," he said.
"I'll just try and play some good footy Friday night and play well for the Roosters and if that comes along it's an added bonus."
"The body's feeling great, the best it's felt in a while after playing the trials and (all eight matches) at the start of the year."
"We're (the Roosters) going not too bad at the moment and getting some consecutive games under my belt is good for the body."
City coach John Cartwright backed Minichiello to make the most of his representative return.
"I was with Anthony when I was at the Roosters and I just love him as a player," Cartwright said.
"He’s a competitor and no doubt he still wants to play representative football. We’re a young squad so it was important we got some experience around them."
