'It's massive!' - Tonga teammate dishes the dirt on Konrad Hurrell's afro

Tonga's David Fusitu'a has lifted the lid on teammate Konrad Hurrell's outrageous afro, ahead of their side's Rugby League World Cup quarter-final in Christchurch on Saturday.

Hurrell, 26, has been a key figure on and off the field so far in the World Cup for Tonga, with his hair starting become a figure of fun for his teammates.

Speaking to media today, Fusitu'a was happy to poke fun at Hurrell's luscious locks.

"He reckons he's growing it - it looks pretty crazy," he said.

"It's massive, I don't know how long he's going to keep that for."

The centre's luscious locks are surprising the rest of the Tongan squad. Source: 1 NEWS
