Rugged All Black Ma'a Nonu has shown a different type of bravery by being filmed getting a spray-tan at a Cardiff beauty salon.
The bruising No.12, best known for his direct running style, was honouring a bet with teammates Cory Jane and Aaron Cruden after losing a game of cards.
Not surprisingly, Nonu is an imposing and unusual presence as he walks into the salon.
The video, which has since been posted online, shows salon staff giggling as he requests that only his face be tanned and then standing awkwardly in the tanning booth to receive treatment.
After being sprayed for a few moments, the staff member applying the tan tells him "it's quite brown, actually, it's not orange".
Nonu then walks to a mirror in shock.
"Aww, no way! That's bloody bronze, man" he says as the young women laugh in the background.
"CJ and Aaron, there you go," Nonu says as the clip ends. "I've finished my challenge".
Fans will see Nonu and his tan on the field if Steve Hanson names him in the team to play England this weekend.
