Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins interviews Wallaby players after Wales win

Wallaby winger Nick Cummins was on fine form with the mic again as he interviewed his team mates following victory over Wales in Cardiff on Saturday. Will Genia mentions his dropped ball in front of an open tryline, and Christian Lealiifano talks goal kicking.

Cummins wasn't able to grab any 'meat', but played his role in what was a great performance away from home for a team that has had it's ups and downs in 2013.

They ended the tour with four wins from five matches, after having lost to England first up, but then beaten Ireland, Scotland, Italy and Wales.

The Wallabies end the year firmly in third place on the official IRB World Rankings.

I like watching Cummins play, but he seriously needs to sort his hair out. Just be normal.

Also, Genia looked like a little child hugging Folau

Yes be normal... every player should have a jarhead haircut...

There is plenty of variety in between jarheads and whatever that is.
I just find it difficult to take him seriously as a player or an athlete looking the way he does.

that's a bit of a limit on your part there Matt. I'm guessing you have a hard time taking Ma Nonu seriously aswell then....or is his style ok for you? I mean his eyebrow is a bit weird....

To be fair...Nonu's eyebrow is a bit weird lol...

Ha, his eye brow is weird, and that alone makes it difficult for me to take him seriously. At least Nonu's hair is done in a style, it is not a style that would suit a lot of people, but there is a plan going on, where as Cummins is just a mess. This is no way detracts from my rating of these two as rugby players, I just think that if I were Australian I might be a bit annoyed that he shows up to represent his country looking like dog.
God I sound old

You sound like a twat is what you sound like...I don't think anyone cares if you take him seriously....thank god there are people who are different. We call these people characters. We need them in our game particularly so we don't have boring prudes like you.

Whatever, I'll do my best not to share my opinions any more so that I don't annoy you.

Cummins "style" is a retro 70's look.. I dig it personally, but then each to their own. How players look doesn't often bother me. You've got those who have short back and side (Ashton, Bieber O'Connor), then you have cavemen (Chabal), then you have those bolder than an eagle (Sharpie)...and everything else in between...

Cummins' interviews post-match are legendary. Best quote is "I was sweating like a gypsy with a mortgage"... hero

Schultz December 03, 2013 3:24 pm

It wasnt "him" that was sweating, it was one of the back row after running in from half way or so, so the actual quote was "he was sweating......"

I think the tape of it is in plays from week 12 or 13, either ay a brilliant line.

I'd die to have that dudes hair! Me of the thin and receding variety. This reminds me of my post match discussions when I was also able to dissect the incidents where I should have received a pass!

This guy is really growing on me and perhaps is an example of where the wallabies should be headed in terms of culture. He's funny, seems to be chatting with everyone in the squad and although he appears to enjoy the limelight, as he should as a pro athlete, he doesn't seem to be all about himself, except for the lack of quality passes that is.

He'd be a fantastic pundit, sports personality when he retires. Imagine the banter between him and Haskell!!!

I like this dude's style. You can have fun, flair, and personality without dancing in the try zone.

Despite all the doom and gloom the Aussies know how to win. Ewen McKenzie looks to be a fine coach.

Fair play to the Wallabies, they needed a good end of year tour and they managed just that.

And when they aren't getting bladdered, they come across as a decent bunch of lads too. Cummins sure has the personality to go with the hairstyle.

Been a fan of Cummnins for a while now, been putting some great performances with the Force and now has had a new lease in life with McKenzie as coach, whilst Deans uderstood he was his 5th choice winger... Amazing how Link can bring the best out of the players.

Hilarious stuff, great entertainment by the honey badger.
Best line to me: Speaking to Leliafano about his goal kicking: "I never have the problem of too much thinking." LOL!

Top bloke.

This clip probably surpasses Haskell-cam and that takes some doing.
With that tache and the bandage on his hand he actually has an air of Keith Lemon about him, (random clip for the non-British on here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOiSnfXJ9wY)

Cummins has an awesome way with words though, doesn't he? Here are a few of his classics:

Pick of the bunch his explanation of why he named himself after the Honey Badger:
""One of the stories that inspires me is that it is documented that a honey badger killed a male lion in a one-on-one,'' Cummins said last year ahead of his Test debut against Argentina in Rosario.

"He clawed the canastas off the big fella. The big one-two. That to me is outstanding."

And I believe it is customary for someone to post this any Honey Badger video:
