Nehe Milner-Skudder faces another long injury layoff after it was revealed the All Blacks winger popped his shoulder out.
The flier suffered the injury during New Zealand’s thrilling 25-24 victory over the Springboks in Cape Town and is expected to miss at least six months of rugby
It’s the latest sickening blow for the fleet-footed winger who was at his dangerous best in Cape Town, particularly when combining with All Blacks fullback Damian McKenzie.
Milner-Skudder threw one supremely-audacious pass to McKenzie during a sweeping All Blacks counter-attack which almost led to a try.
But he now faces a long road back to the top, one that is unfortunately all too familiar as he’s struggled for consistent Rugby since the World Cup final two years ago.
