Jason Eaton of the Wellington Hurricanes and the All Blacks has always looked like somewhat of a hill billy to me. He was one of the biggest supporters of the Mullet and basically looks like he's been pulled straight from the bush.. with all due respect of course.
Now, I've come across these pics of him in pre-season training for Hurricanes Super 14 campaign, and he looks like he's been lost at sea for 6 months.
I don't claim to be the most stylish person around myself, but what on earth is he thinking? Nevermind the way it looks though, that must be so uncomfortable and irritating when playing, especially scrumming down as a lock.
Maybe it's the influence of growing up in the eighties and watching teen wolf one too many times.
The Hurricanes play the Waratahs in Sydney on saturday the 16th. We'll be watching closely to see if Eaton comes out adorned in the gorilla beard or not. If he is, I'll try get a clip up on the site as it would be a site to behold!
