Cummins' dreams dashed by injury
A long-awaited dream will be put on hold until at least June for former Bundaberg East Coast Buccaneers player Nick Cummins.
According to Nick's brother Luke, Wallabies coach Robbie Deans sat down with the Western Force winger and “pencilled him in” for the first two matches of the Wallabies Spring Tour of Japan and Europe.
But a demoralising foot injury during training has forced the speedster out of Deans' initial plans, and shattered the 22-year-old's Wallabies dream.
“He's devastated really, considering he was told he was playing the first two, locked in, and then to get injured - but now he's intent on getting fit for his next opportunity in June,” Luke Cummins said.
The Wallabies' first game is against the All Blacks in Tokyo on October 31.
