Perth - Western Force coach Michael Foley has revealed that Wallabies wing Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins will miss the first couple of Super Rugby matches as he needs surgery.

According to the Rugby Week website, Cummins left Western Australia to play in Japan last year for personal reasons, but he has been made available to play for the Force this season.

"Nick is having a little bit of minor surgery on his ankle at the moment," said Foley.

"He should only miss the first couple of games for us. He's got to go back to Japan, potentially play one more game there... but we're thrilled to have him back - everybody is thrilled to have him back - from all sorts of perspectives."
