RugbyRocks.com’s SAVANNAH CONNACHER and LERATO MKHONDO rank the South African rugby players with the most unique hairstyles. Here’s No 5 to No 1 …
5. Dillyn Leyds
The Stormers and Springbok utility back rarely goes unnoticed with his trendy outfits and long curly locks. He often opts for the popular man bun look, though.
4. Demetri Catrakilis
Long hair certainly suits the Kings flyhalf, who’s nicknamed ‘the Greek God’. Demetri’s favourite actor is Brad Pitt, so maybe he’s going for his look?
3. Werner Kok
The Blitzbok looks more like a surfer than a rugby player with his trademark beach-blonde mane! Werner showed off his locks – and his budgie smuggler – while standing in the Vancouver snow last year.
2. Justin Geduld
The Blitzbok really stands out on the field when he rocks his red, green and yellow dreadlocks.
1. Faf de Klerk
Of course, Faf is our No 1! His long, Prince Charming-like hair is even more recognisable than his South African flag Speedo. During last year’s World Cup, World Rugby made a spoof hair advert featuring Faf, which is well worth watching.
