Who is sporting fastest haircut in the NRL?
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.
SUCCESS: Quick-lidder Jai Arrow.
