Australian Wallaby and Sevens star Nick "The Honey Badger" Cummins has the air of a man who fell out of the sky but until we took him, he'd never actually been skydiving. In fact, he's actually shit scared of heights. In this episode of Off Day, we bail out of an aeroplane with one of Rugby Union's most colourful characters.

On the way to the dive centre Nick and his partner Martine discuss his nickname and how he got it, the time he fired a rocket launcher in Cambodia, how he developed his swag of Aussie colloquialisms, and what terrifies him about jumping from a small aircraft at 1400 ft.

This year Nick will be training with the Australian Sevens to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics. We look forward to seeing how he describes the experience.
