Moment Jai Arrow shaved off his mullet
Gold Coast rugby league star Jai Arrow has put in a huge hit - dropping his mullet to raise money for a charity close to his heart.
Gold Coast Titans star Young Tonumaipea clipped Arrow's luscious locks for the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave on Monday.
Arrow, a Titans lock, said he braved the shave in honour of his mother Nicole Manson and in support of all Australians who faced blood cancer.
"It was a real shock when my mum was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma," the 25-year-old said.
"She has now finished up her treatment and is healthy, but I know that sadly isn't the case for a lot of other people.
"I didn't think twice about throwing my hand up to help. My head definitely feels different without a mullet but I hope I can now run faster."
Before Arrow jets off to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2021, he is keen to raise more than $5000 for the charity.
"I have raised around $3800 so far and I am keen to raise as much as I can and make a difference," he said.
Leukaemia Foundation general manager of supporters Rachael Lance said the money would go towards patient support programs and research.
