Toulon - Toulon and Springbok wing Bryan Habana has tweeted a pic featuring team-mates Matt Giteau's and Bakkies Botha, with Giteau tackling Botha's hairstyle with a pair of clippers.

Giteau is known for his unusual hairstyles but it was unlikely that the former Wallaby would be giving the Botha anything more than his usual short back-and-sides, lest he incur the big man's wrath.

Bryan Habana tweeted the picture with the following message:

"The @rctofficiel #barbershop giving @bakkiesbotha a trim!! @matt_giteau #guns #manytalents #shortbackandsides"

Sharks and Springbok wing JP Pietersen warned Giteau a slip of the hand whilst playing Bakkies' barber could prove costly:

"@matt_giteau you look very nervous!?!", Pietersen tweeted.

"I am... Ha ha don't want to ruin the big mans cut @jppietersen", replied Giteau.

How about a Mohawk, Bakkies? - Bryan Habana via Twitter"
