Sporting clubs are often referred to as a family but the Lower Macleay Magpies take the statement literally.
The club's men's and women's team has five couples, two sisters, two brothers, a brother and sister and a mother and daughter for the 2019 season.
Dave Davis, who joins the Magpies after more than a decade with the Macleay Valley Mustangs, made the switch to be closer to his partner.
"There will be days where we play at the same ground and it will be nice to be able to watch each other play," Davis said.
The fullback will also take on the role of coaching the women's side for the season ahead.
"I was water boy for the side when they played in the 9's and there was a vacancy so I thought I would give it a go," Davis said.
"Hopefully my experience of playing can help develop their skills and help them improve their structure."
The women's side, which won the premiership in the 9's competition, will have some stability with the majority of their players returning while the side has also made a few additions.
Annika Quinlivan, who moved to the Macleay from South Australia last year, is trying rugby league for the first time this year.
"A few people have told me to give it a go and I thought, 'why not'?" she said.
"I love it so far, the girls have all been great. I didn't know much about the sport but I think I am getting the hang of it."
The Magpies will get their season underway in the Bain Cup this weekend.
