A whole host of big-hearted Leinster rugby stars took part in a 'shave or dye' campaign today to raise funds for the family of departing defence coach Kurt McQuilkin's family.

The likes of Jack McGrath, Mike Ross, Cian Healy and Fergus McFadden made drastic alterations to their mane's to raise money for McQuilkin, who is returning to his native New Zealand for personal reasons.

Leinster charity partners Aware and DEBRA Ireland have helped with the campaign.

A signed Paul O'Connell portrait is also being auctioned off on Twitter as part of the campaign.
