Saracens star Maro Itoje is almost unrecognisable having gone from his trademark dreadlocks to an unrecognisable skinhead.
Along with pictures and a video of him sporting his new cut, he posted the following message.
Itoje wrote: “Impermanence is a fact of life! I had to switch things up! 💇🏾💇🏾🤝 Been thinking about cutting my hair for a while, i finally did it!!
“I started growing my hair 8/9 years ago and Moussa was the barber that encouraged me to grow it all those years ago so it was only right that he was the one to cut it off ✂️✂️
“Also this hair cut was a choice so to all you bald guys telling me “welcome to the club” I aint in your club!!! Still have plenty of years of hair groth left in me lol”
Posting an image of the final result, he later commented: “Back to Old School Maro,”

“A show pony” – Who are the most overrated and underrated rugby players of all-time?
Brace yourself for the controversial results that are sure to spark debates and stir the rugby community.
#3. Simon Shaw (England)
‘Underappreciated’ and ‘unfortunate’ are two words which probably encapsulate Shaw. Despite incredible longevity and a durability few other rugby players could match, particularly as the game became more and more physical, Shaw should have easily amassed over 100 caps.
Legend of the game Martin Johnson, who was an inspirational leader and brilliant player, generally stood in his way, but the Wasps man’s skills were often underutilised by those that coached him.
Former Wales assistant and defence coach guru Shaun Edwards even said Shaw is the ‘most underrated player in recent history’.
#2. Agustin Creevy (Argentina)
One of the game’s most intelligent ball-handling forwards, Creevy backs up a superb work-rate in the loose with granite physicality in the tight, with his ability to win direct collisions against opposition forwards one of his key attributes. Very underrated.
