Andy Carroll has explained that he is considering cutting off his hair for charity in the latest episode of Mail Sport’s Croqued Monsieurs.
The forward spoke to Nik Simon in France ahead of the Rugby World Cup semi-finals, and revealed he grew his hair because Joey Barton told him he’d pay him £200 for growing it long – but never did.
It’s been long since, and on November 14 it’s World Diabetes Day. Carroll’s son suffers from the illness, so he is considering cutting his locks to raise awareness for diabetes.
Carroll is now based in France, playing for Amiens in Ligue 2 north of Paris, where England will take on South Africa in their semi-final on Saturday.
Not into rugby, Carroll was gifted a rugby ball by Simon, and pledged to research the rules in response. ‘It feels weird that,’ Carroll said before explaining he’d never really considered playing rugby before and doing a few kick-ups with the ball.
