Nick ‘the Honey Badger’ Cummins isn’t playing any rugby these days but it appears he’s certainly keeping himself busy regardless.

The former Wallabies winger is one of the most loved cult figures in the history of the game and videos like this are exactly why he’s such a loved character.

Cummins became famous for his absolutely fantastic post-match interviews but he’s also got a soft side and loves to explore the outback in Australia.

While on a recent trip, the former Western Force man spotted a sheep in distress, after it got its head caught in a barbed-wire fence while trying to get home. The Badge pulled straight over, freed it, and lifted it back over the fence to make sure it was safe and could make its way back to the flock.

What an absolute hero.
