Cummins back with Force

Australia international Nick Cummins will return to Super Rugby in 2015 after signing a contract with former club Western Force.

Cummins left the Force on compassionate grounds last summer to join Coca Cola Red Sparks but will return to Perth at the conclusion of the current Japanese season in February.

The 27-year-old will spend the Super Rugby season with the Force before returning to Japan for the 2015-16 Top League campaign.

"In November I was given an opportunity to play for the Barbarians," Cummins said in a statement issued by club.

"Walking off the field after the match at Twickenham was a surreal experience, knowing I had just played against my country. It definitely lit a fire within and had me thinking about what could have been.

"But I heard a bloke say at the end of the Super Rugby season that he hadn't heard no fat lady sing.

"I'm stoked to be back on the burst and returning to Australian rugby in 2015.

"Thanks to the Western Force and more importantly the Coca-Cola Red Sparks in Japan for making my return back to Australia possible.

"Gonna be a huge year. Can't wait to get amongst it."
