WATCH: Milner-Skudder pays dear price for AB win

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 11:44

INJURY UPDATE: Wing Nehe Milner-Skudder paid a dear price for New Zealand's nail-biting 25-24 win over South Africa at the weekend.

Milner-Skudder suffered a dislocated right shoulder in the Rugby Championship encounter between the Al Blacks and Springboks at Newlands.

The 26-year-old, who is now set to miss the All Blacks’ Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia and the end-of-year tour to Europe, had to be taken off after landing awkwardly just before halftime at Newlands.

This latest injury came rather innocuously when opposite Courtnall Skosan, not a big guy himself, dove on Milner-Skudder while he was going down in an attempt to re-gather the ball in the seventh extra minute of the bizarrely long first half.

Milner-Skudder previously isolated his left shoulder in 2016 and broke a bone in his foot during the early stages of this year's Super Rugby campaign.

Hansen also said flyhalf Beauden Barrett had suffered a concussion in Saturday’s game, which New Zealand won 25-24, but should recover quickly.
