NICK Cummins has plenty to be nervous about heading into tonight's must-win Rugby Championship clash against South Africa at Suncorp Stadium.
It will be just his seventh Test in Wallaby gold - the Western Force flyer's last international was on last year's spring tour before succumbing to a nagging knee injury.
And the Logan-raised man will have the unenviable task of stopping opposing winger Bryan Habana, who scored a hat-trick of tries last time both teams met in September, with the Springboks winning 31-8.
But Cummins, one of eight children, is extremely laid back about most things, as his self-proclaimed Honey Badger nickname proves.
When asked about playing in a backline that looks good, he responded with quick wit:
"I don't focus on facial features, I focus on their ability and talent, and that's pretty high.
"I'm humbled to be within that bunch of characters."
Cummins took the same attitude to the question on opposing Habana, who has scored 40 international tries - the most by a Springbok.
"Don't show him the sideline, he's a pretty quick rooster," was Cummins's response.
"Just be confident coming up in the line; it's about having a presence physically in front of a player which could change what they're going to do."
And that was exactly why Cummins came up with his own Honey Badger nickname, which has few predators because of its thick skin and ferocious defensive abilities.
Cummins won't just be tested by Habana's quick feet, with the Springboks tipped to utilise their renowned kicking game.
"They're really good in the air and they've shown that over the whole Super season," Cummins said.
"We're mindful of it and we've trained accordingly to try and hold them off."
