    The Honey Badger Returns?

    On Page 88 of the West, Nick says he would be up to playing a few games for the Force if Twiggy would have him..

    Nick Cummins will never forget his first love.

    With the biggest adventure of his life about to kick off on The Bachelor Australia on Wednesday night, a trip to Perth this week had the “Honey Badger” reminiscing about his favourite “girl”, nib Stadium.

    “I can see the stadium from my window where I’m staying,” Cummins said, whistling as he remembered his old turf where he played for the Western Force for eight years.

    “A lot of memories there — beautiful spot.

    “The sea of blue at nib — the passion, the excitement, everything that place gives, it feels like you’re in a stadium of emotion. It’s powerful.”

    With Perth contestant Brooke Blurton rumoured to be in the final four, it could have something to do with his motivation to spend spend a lot more time in his old home town.

    “I’m actually thinking about coming back for a trot,” he said.

    “Still got a few kilometres in the old getaway sticks. So I might book myself in for a bit of a tune-up, a bit of a service, about a month of conditioning, and then spearhead myself into the mix and if Twiggy (Andrew Forrest) and the boys will let me come in for a couple of games.

    “They have a photo of me on the wall at the Red Sea (in Subiaco).

    “I think it has changed names or something now but that’s where I learnt most of my dance moves — on the d-floor there.”

    With less than a week until the Ten reality show airs, Cummins confessed he’s getting nervous.

    “Some of the anxiety has crept up a bit. Who knows what’s bloody going to come out of it,” he said.

    “It was a whole ball of emotion — there’s moments of depth, and moments of just good energy, to caring and just laughing and crying. There’s all kinds of things but that’s what its about.”

    Would be the best possible promotion WSR could hope for.

    Maybe I'm a miserable old git, but it would take more than the Badge to get me to watch The Bachelor.

    Ouch! a low blow from the Betoota Advocate..

    https://www.betootaadvocate.com/unca...involved-with/
    It has been confirmed today that Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins is now developing a bit of a track record for associating himself with disappointing franchises.

    This comes after his most recent disappointment with the Bachelor franchise, whereby he refused to pick a young woman to engage in a relationship with.

    It was a decision that confused many and ultimately left former contestant Cass as the only person in Australian happy with the outcome.

    With Brooke, Brit and Soph all seeming like great options, the Honey Bachelor explained that he wasn’t ready to settle down before strolling off down the beach like a forlorn Jarrod from seasons past.

    The call angered viewers who need people to make a life-changing decision in order to ensure a palatable viewing experience.

    This, however, was still not as disappointing as the failed Perth Super Rugby Franchise the Western Force.

    The Western Force were sensationally cut at the back end of last year, after years of little to no penetration in an AFL swamped state, much to the anger of billionaire mining magnate ‘Twiggy’ Forrest who the ARU refused to take millions of dollars from.

    Failing to ever make a finals appearance, and eventually cut from the failing competition Super Rugby itself, the finale of the Bach has in some sense lived up to expectations.

    *The Wallabies would obviously have bumped the Bachie down to third in terms of the disappointment scales, but don’t officially count as a franchise so were ineligible for the rankings.

    It's a satire folks, and not a very well researched one.

    It's pretty indicative of Australian Rugby at present.....

    Only a ex-Wallaby could go on the Bachelor and not score!
