Nehe Milner-Skudder rejoins Hurricanes

·1-min read

Former All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder has confirmed he will return to the Hurricanes on a short-term contract ahead of next year’s Super Rugby Aotearoa.

A 13-cap All Black and 2015 World Cup final starter, he had been in the Highlanders squad over the past two heavily-disrupted seasons after returning from a spell at Toulon. He has also played for Manawatu and East Coast over the past few months.

Milner-Skudder is expected to stay with the Hurricanes for a couple of months only to start with, boosting the training squad before a phalanx of All Blacks return in February.

Dad time

It is unclear what might happen then, with offers from overseas on the table but with the player and his wife awaiting a new arrival. Now 30, he says that he’d rather become a father at home.

“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.”
