Nick Cummins has been in the USA this week to promote the Wallabies fixture against the USA Eagles in Chicago on September 5th. This live TV interview didn’t go all to plan, as the host introduced Cummins as the Honey Bear, rather than the fierce Honey Badger.
“Nick Cummins, aka the Honey Bear, one of the best nicknames in all of sports,” he said.
Cummins and scrumhalf Nic White laughed it off and rather than correct the mistake, they waited until the reporter realised himself, a little later on in the interview. They were also asked to show off some moves, which they handled well despite being asked to ‘do some Harlem Globetrotters for us’.
Cummins also took part in another chat a few days back, where he was up to his usual mischief, confusing hosts with his Auslingo, and bouncing around like a Kangaroo.
Cummins and White have been recalled to the Wallabies squad for the upcoming Test against Argentina, slotting in as injury replacements for Rob Horne and Will Genia.
