Kommer gets the chop

March 10, 2016 1:25 PM

ESSENDON forward Nick Kommer is - or rather, was - known for his ragged dreadlocks.

But no longer, with Kommer giving up his luxuriant locks as part of the World's Greatest Shave for leukaemia research, and raising more than $10,000.  

Bombers fans Alex and Evan get started on chopping off the Kommer mop. Pictures: essendonfc.com.au

 The new aerodynamic Kommer

Thanks to Alex, Evan and their dad Daniel for the big donation 

And thanks to the ladies from Shear Couture in Moonee for donating their time and hairdressing expertise
