Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: Af­ter a pro­longed NRL off sea­son, a num­ber of play­ers have re­turned to the field sport­ing quick new hair­cuts.

This list will in­ves­ti­gate whether or not hair cuts im­pact player per­for­mance.

Note: A quick lid is a hair cut where both sides are shaved off and the re­main­ing head of hair is left alone. 1. Jai Ar­row,

Gold Coast Ti­tans

In 2018, Ar­row played 21 games for the Ti­tans, lost 13 and won eight with his Su­perCoach av­er­age score 64.

In 2019 he played 17 games, lost 14 and won three.

Now in 2020, pos­si­bly due to his new hair, Ar­row helped the Ti­tans to their first win in al­most a year. 2. Vil­iame Kikau, Pen­rith Pan­thers

In third place on the lad­der, the Pen­rith Pan­thers have won three of their last four games, knock­ing off reign­ing pre­miers in round one.

Kikau has been sport­ing this quick lid since round 2 of the 2020 sea­son.

3. Brad­man Best, New­cas­tle Knights

Best made his de­but in round 23 of the 2019 sea­son in their 46–4 loss against the Tigers, be­fore scor­ing his first NRL try in round 24.

Since rock­ing a quick lid in 2020, he has scored four tries from two matches, had two try as­sists and is av­er­ag­ing 176.2 run me­tres a game.

So it ap­pears there’s some­thing in the quick lid the­ory.
