Cummins was granted a release from his contract with the Western Force earlier this year to join the Japanese club, the Coca Cola Red Sparks.

However he's been given leave by the club to return to the Force for next year's Super Rugby season and will return after the World Cup.

The 27-year-old, who has been capped 15 times for the Wallabies, says playing against his country for the Barbarians inspired him to try and make a return to test rugby.
