Nehe Milner-Skudder has been dealt a fresh injury blow after a dislocated right shoulder ruled the New Zealand star out for up to six months.

The tricky winger was hurt after landing awkwardly shortly before half-time of Saturday's thrilling 25-24 Rugby Championship victory over South Africa at Newlands and will undergo surgery. 

It marks a fresh setback for Milner-Skudder, who was starting to hit top form again for the All Blacks following a series of injuries that saw him go almost two years without playing a Test for his country before he returned to the fold last month.

Milner-Skudder dislocated his left shoulder in 2016 and broke a foot early in this year's Super Rugby season.


A tweet from the All Blacks read: "UPDATE: Steve Hansen confirms  @Nmilnerskudder dislocated shoulder. Will require surgery. Expected to be out for upto six months."

Milner-Skudder will consequently miss the final Bledisloe Cup encounter against Australia this month and the All Blacks' November Internationals in Europe.
