Milner-Skudder gets Super gig
NEWS: A familiar face will be in the Hurricanes’ colours when the new Super Rugby Pacific tournament starts in February.
In a report from stuff.co.nz, All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder confirmed that he will return to the Wellington-based franchise on a short-term contract.
It is expected that he will be with the team for six weeks.
The 31-year-old’s presence will be a boost for the franchise during their preparations before All Blacks Jordie Barrett, TJ Perenara, Ardie Savea, Tyrel Lomax, Asafo Aumua and Dane Coles arrive back from leave in February.
He played for the Hurricanes between 2015 and 2019 and he was a member of the Highlanders squad in 2020 and 2021
Milner-Skudder said he looked at options overseas, but in the end decided on what will be best for his family.
“I had a look at a few opportunities over in the States, but we have actually got our first baby – my wife and I have our first bubba due in January,” Milner-Skudder told NewstalkZB.
“So, all roads lead to staying here for the arrival of our new birth.”
