Cape Town - New Zealand wing Nehe Milner-Skudder has suffered another blow as he looks set to miss the rest of the Test season with a shoulder injury.

Milner-Skudder, 26, had just re-established himself in the All Blacks starting line-up and ran out in the number 14 jersey against the Boks.

But his dismal run of injury luck continued when he landed awkwardly on his right shoulder and it has since been confirmed as dislocated.

Milner-Skudder is now set to miss their Bledisloe Cup clash with Australia as well as their end-of-year international matches in Europe.
