Bulldogs winger Josh Addo-Carr has been a busy man this week, as he works tirelessly to immerse himself in the culture of his new NRL club and new hometown.
The Foxx has reportedly spent the last couple days becoming familiar with some of the local businesses and characters in the greater Bankstown region.
Starting with a visit to a local hair salon, Addo-Carr opted against the usual fade and instead went with a SydneyGirlz style blow-dry. The Origin great reportedly spent all of yesterday morning gossiping with some of the local Belmore mums while the stylist tamed his curly lid.
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have seen several changes to the side that beat the Cowboys in Round One, as they prepare for this Sunday’s match against the Broncos in Sydney.
A last minute 6-4 victory in Townsville has breathed air into the ‘dogs of war’ narrative that Gus Gould has been trying to instill into the club culture, and their momentum is expected to only grow with the return of Tevita Pangai Junior this weekend.
Other changes include Luke Thompson moving into the starting prop position, and Ava Seumanufagai coming off the bench.
However, it’s Addo-Carr’s arab makeover that looks to be the most exciting development in the Doggies squad.
After leaving the salon with a Katt Williams-esque hairstyle, The Foxx then went about perusing some of the area’s finest Lebanese menswear retailers.
His tailored three-piece suit was met with a wave of compliments the elderly gentleman outside the cafes of Burwood road, as the Bulldogs star hit the streets like a local politician.
At time of press, The Foxx was reportedly smoking shisha with a group of local tradesmen and intensely discussing the changes to local area’s building code.
While coaches worry that this kind of intense cultural and social overload may affect his on-field performances, they remain confident that he’ll be 100% focused on his footy when Ramadan begins in April.
