Cummins to play for Baas Baas against Australia

Former Wallabies winger Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins has agreed to play against Australia for the Barbarians at Twickenham on November the 1st.

The Barbarians are rugby’s most prestigious invitational club and play a match against a Test nation at Twickenham almost every year.

Barbarian sides are made up of international rugby stars from around the world and frequently players representing the side feature against their birth nation.

The Baabaas have announced that Cummins is the first player who has committed to play for them in November.

Cummins’ popularity soared this year with a series of post Super Rugby match interviews but then shocked Australia when it was announced that he was leaving his Perth based Western Force club to play in Japan.

Cummins looked set to play for the Wallabies in next year’s Rugby world cup but his release to Japanese Top League side Coca Cola West Red Spark for family reasons appears to have ended that dream as Australia have a policy of not selecting foreign based players.

The winger explained that he did not want to leave Australia but was forced to do so in order to provide support for his sick father, brother and sister.

The Barbarians squad is expected to meet in London on October the 28th to prepare for the match against Australia.
