No One Knows What This Australian Rugby Player Is Saying

Even YouTube subtitles don't know what Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins was trying to say after his team lost.
April 23, 2015, 8:28pm

This interview happened and this guy said some things and we here at VICE Sports have no idea what the fuck those things were. So, like any investigative reporter looking for answers, I turned on the subtitles and was amused to discover that YouTube has no idea what the fuck this guy is saying either. Granted, I don't speak Australian—although i'm almost 110% certain Australians speak English, too—but here is my attempt at deciphering what Western Force winger Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins probably said during his post game interview as opposed to what YouTube subtitle transcriptions thinks he said. Again, we are not magical wizard translators and don't know for sure what's being said, but here goes nothing.

Q: What's going through your mind?

VICE Sports transcription:

"I sound like I've been bloody whacked in the Niagara Falls. Sorry about that, but look, I'll tell you what, Mate. Tonight, the last 20, the boys are like…last week sort of didn't fight it out to the end, this week we fought it out to the end and the score board, on the line for the last bloody ten, our mindset was to just like bloody […?…] get up the guts and press forward and wait until some bastard rescues you. That was the main thing, just leave it all out there and oh mate, I'm really shot, it's got emotional loss, but jeeze, if the Bees weren't in it, we're not far off."

YouTube subtitles:

Sailor a vein buddy whacked in the Niagara Falls are about that but, ok I'll tell you what by to naught that last 20 the boys like loss way week we sit in for that to be in this way we forget to the end and we and the school board will be on the log a lot of body temp and I'm on set was just like like Billy Burke a mail to get the got to just press warden vitals a bus to rescue the that was the night to slaving away at their own all might oh I'm really shadows got emotional a loss but days but as obeys the wearing it and I'm we're not far off.

Q: You personally had a good game…how did it feel?

VICE Sports transcription:

"All right. It's good to be out there and find a bit of space. I mean, when you get that ball with a little bit of momentum it gives you wings and you can finally run into someone or run around them, so I'm still working on running around them."

YouTube subtitles:

All rights good to be at their bonus buy something when you're going to get that ball with a bit of momentum at gives you wings in you can follow you know the route run into someone or a random but the still working on running around.

Q: Do you have a message for the Sea of Blue to turn up for these next couple of home games?

VICE Sports transcription:

"Bloody Oath and Sea of Blue, we're going to kick the tires and light the fires so get your […?…] down, bang her on the seat and we'll shake hands and tell a few stories after the game, eh?"

YouTube subtitles:

Buddy I and sabe lo we're gonna vote to keep the tower's low the cause though get your txt de un backing on to say and no shake hands until the stories of the guy might nighttime on your boys.

We may never know what Nick Cummins actually said, but one thing is certain—Honey Badger rocks a mean flow.
