Nipping on the rear usually is an indication that one bunny wants the other one to move. Jack gives Rucy very gentle nips on her bum when he wants to be left alone in the litterbox, or when she's blocking his way to get out of the pen.
He may be wanting her to move away so that he can be given a turn to be pet.
If he does it in a very aggressive way, then it looks like they are still working on parts of their relationship.
They should be sure during this time to give them both equal amounts of affection, so he doesn't feel threatened that she is being considered the "top"bun.
