Cape Town - All Blacks and Crusaders centre Ryan Crotty has had his beard shaved off for charityin Christchurch.

Crotty, who has been growing his Ned Kelly-style beard for two years, "came clean" in aid of raising money for the Child Cancer Foundation.

Crotty, who was ruled out of the All Blacks' most recent Rugby Championship Tests against the Pumas and Springboks with a cheek injury, is expected to make a return to the fold against the Springboks at Ellis Park on Saturday, October 4.
