MUNSTER-MAD Declan Smith is willing to go one step further for his team. He sported a bright red Mohawk hairstyle for Munster’s Heineken Cup Semi-Final trip to Marseilles to face Toulon in the South of France.
The former Louth native, now of Ashgrove, Tralee, said the overall process took three hours. “It was very traumatic,” he said. “I had to bleach and dye it, I don’t know how women go through this every couple of weeks.”
Declan and his travelling compatriot Richard Bono were in buoyant mood and optimistic of the team’s chances before they set off for the French city on Friday but unfortunately the Munster side were unable to overcome a strong Toulon side.
