All Black Milner-Skudder has surgery

Oct 18, 2017 - 1:00 AM All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder has successfully undergone surgery on his dislocated right shoulder and will be out for up to seven months.

The luckless Hurricanes back has endured a torrid 18 months with injuries, including a dislocated left shoulder and broken foot.

His most recent setback - dislocating his right shoulder in this month's 25-24 Test win over South Africa - will keep him out until at least next April.

The Springboks match was Milner-Skudder's third Test of 2017, having played in the reverse fixture in Albany and against Argentina in New Plymouth.

He said on social media the operation went perfectly.

"I have learnt from past injuries to not worry about what is out of my control, take it one step at a time and focus on the here and now," Milner-Skudder said.

"Combine those with a relentless drive to come back stronger and I know I've got this."
