Milner-Skudder in Maori squad

Nehe Milner-Skudder has been included in the 28-man New Zealand Maori squad to take on the British & Irish Lions in Rotorua on 17 June.

This will be the ninth time the Maori have met the Lions, with the last encounter being a 19-13 win to the New Zealand side in 2005.
