Wallabies winger Nick Cummins is returning to the form of the game where he first made his mark after signing with the Australian men's Sevens rugby program in a bid to compete at the Rio Olympics.

Cummins 28, first played Sevens for Australian in 2007 and was part of the 2010 Commonwealth Games silver-medal winning squad in Delhi.

Nicknamed the 'Honey Badger', the colourful character has eight Sevens world series caps for Australia, and has also played 15 Tests for the Wallabies.

"I'm keen as mustard to get this opportunity to play Sevens again," said Cummins, who will be available to Australia for the last four legs of the Sevens World Series through to the 2016 Rio Games.

Cummins will join fellow Wallabies Quade Cooper and Henry Speight in representing Australia in Rio.
