Nick Cummins was awarded the Australian Rugby Union Players Association Medal for Excellence last week.
Cummins was chosen by his fellow players over stellar performers like Israel Folau and Michael Hooper, and now he can add a second gong to his trophy cabinet, as B/R bestows the honour of Rugby’s Most Entertaining Man upon his famous mane.
We’ve looked beyond on-field exploits for this award. Rugby’s Most Entertaining Man must bring a certain "joie de vivre" to his play, of course, but his persona must match his play.
He must be a one-off, a "character" amid the professional era’s gym-bred automatons.
He must stand out as an individual among the monosyllabic world of media-trained sportsmen.
And so, from his play on the field to his persona off it, Cummins fits the bill.
