They're not as big as the Souths siblings most rugby league punters would be familiar with but after Sunday's showing at Bathurst you get the feeling Mudgee's Burgess brothers will be hard to miss over the second half of the Group 10 season.
Chanse and Casey Burgess both crossed for tries in the Dragons' thumping 36-6 mauling of an under-manned St Pat's at Jack Arrow Oval on Sunday.
The pair scored the Dragons' only tries of the first half to help the visitors cling to a 10-6 lead at the break before Jack Littlejohn's outfit ran over the top of St Pat's in the second 40 minutes.
Tries to Nick Harvey, Littlejohn, Tom Lawson, Jared Robinson and then Jayden Brown late in the piece wrapped up an impressive second stanza from the premier league ladder leaders.
Chanse was his usual destructive self, rolling into the St Pat's defence and popping plenty of off-loads while Casey was immense at lock.
He powered through 31 tackles and 16 hit-ups in his 73 minutes in the middle of the park, his well-earned try coming off a quick tap five minutes before the break.
The Dragons lock loomed up in support of a Jack Beasley break and received the ball from the red-headed hooker before being brought down 15 metres out from the St Pat's line.
Casey won the penalty at the ruck and decided on a quick tap, catching the St Pat's defence napping to score under the black dot.
"I saw Jack (Beasley) do one and I thought if (the referee's) going to let it go I'll see if I can get one and I got through," Casey laughed, returning to Mudgee this season after helping Lakes United to the Newcastle first grade grand final in 2018.
"I just think we were fitter at the end of the day. We had a big pre-season and fitness is the key.
"The boys were on, we've been training hard. We're right at the top and I think we can go a long way."
Littlejohn lauded the pair, adding his side didn't perform as well as expected but with both Burgess boys firing the Dragons remain a tough outfit to handle.
"Chanse is a ball of energy when he's out there, very strong and good skills. He must have been a halfback in another life," Littlejohn smiled.
"And Casey works hard, no matter what, every week. It's good to see them get rewarded with tries today."
Chanse scored first, bouncing his way through some pretty soft St Pat's defence in the 10th minute and from that point St Pat's fought their way back into the contest.

Really, throughout the first 40 minutes the hosts went with the Dragons, they just couldn't put any polish on the end of their sets.
The Dragons skipped to a 10-0 lead nearing the break before the Bathurst boys finally broke through, Chris Kirby touching down in the south-western corner of Jack Arrow Oval.
Despite the best efforts of the Mudgee supporters, young Adam Booth proved a cool head with the boot and nailed the sideline conversion to give the hosts plenty of belief heading into the sheds.
It was short-lived momentum though, Mudgee crossing five times in the second half to wrap up the big win.
Littlejohn was somewhat disappointed with the amount of ball his side turned over, adding the Dragons can be guilty of "pushing passes and trying to play too pretty".
"But we're getting there. We're definitely building," he said.
"I thought against Panthers and then again this week we probably weren't at our best but we've got a big couple of weeks coming, we have to pick it up.
One of a throng of injured St Pat's guns forced to watch on from the sideline, captain-coach Luke Branighan said his side's improved on its last-start loss against Oberon but still had a long way to go.
"I thought we wee good for 60 minutes, we were just dumb in regards to unforced errors, really stupid mistakes," he added.
"And eventually against a good side like Mudgee it'll wear you down."
