Wallabies winger Nick Cummins to play in Japan, miss 2015 World Cup

  • Print

PERTH, Australia - Australia winger Nick Cummins has foregone a chance to play in next year's World Cup, after signing to play rugby in Japan from next year.

The 26-year-old Cummins has been granted a release from his contracts with the Australian Rugby Union and the Western Force to join the Coca Cola West Red Sparks for the next Japanese season.

Western Force chief executive Mark Sinderberry said Cummins was granted a release on compassionate grounds. He did not elaborate on the circumstances, other than saying Cummins "faces a very unique set of challenges. We are aware of the reasons and, in good time, Nick will be the person to speak through those reasons."

Cummins, known as the Honey Badger, played 15 tests for Australia including all three tests against France in June.
