Milner-Skudder on the road to recovery

    2016-03-23 15:06

    Cape Town - Hurricanes and All Blacks wing Nehe Milner-Skudder says he's making a fast recovery after undergoing surgery on his shoulder.

    According to the NZ Herald website, Milner-Skudder dislocated his shoulder in the Hurricanes' 23-19 victory over the Blues in Week 3.

    On Tuesday surgeons completed his shoulder reconstruction and Milner-Skudder shared a photo from the hospital bed alongside his girlfriend Hanna Tevita who was there to support him following the operation.

    "Op all done and dusted. In good hands with this one looking after me on the road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for the messages of support."

    Because of the injury Milner-Skudder will miss the rest of the Super Rugby season and realistically won't be seen in an All Blacks jersey until at least the year-end tour to the United States and Europe.
