He may have left our shores for Japan four months ago, but Australia’s obsession with former Western Force winger Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins has barely subsided.
Cummins’ full-throttle play on the flank for the Force and Wallabies, and his unique and infinitely quotable interview style, are custom-made for cult hero status.
We got another first-hand taste of the Honey Badger’s talent on the paddock and in front of the microphone last weekend when he took on his former Wallaby teammates, scoring a try and producing some more post-match gold.
Now that he has briefly swept back into our lives again, it seems appropriate to revisit Denis Carnahan’s outstanding tribute song that surfaced in April. A reworking of Leonard Cohen’s classic ‘Hallejuah’ – later made more famous by the late Jeff Buckley’s version – Carnahan’s lyrics feature some of Cummins’ best lines, while the accompanying video depicts his finest tries and most epic interview moments. Enjoy!
