Ofa shaves for Starship

Ofa shaves for Starship

Ofa Tu’ungafasi is not only a powerful prop for the Blues but is also a dad who wants to support our national children’s hospital, Starship.

Ofa’s dreads have been iconic throughout his professional rugby career, all starting when he decided to drive down with a friend to Wellington and get a head full of dreads from Ma’a Nonu’s dreader.
“My hair naturally dreads, but I wanted to see what it would look like if I got it professionally done,” said Ofa.
But he’s now decided to shave them all off to help raise money for Starship.
“I’ve got two girls, they’re three and two, I was thinking about what would happen if they got sick one day. I’ve had a lot of feedback from friends and relatives that Starship looks after kids really well, so if something does happen I’d want my girls to be looked after by the best.”
