Former All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder will make a surprise return in Super Rugby Aotearoa, but it won’t be for the Hurricanes.
According to a report by 1 NEWS, the 2015 Rugby World Cup winner will instead turn out for the Highlanders in the competition contested by the five New Zealand franchises.
The 29-year-old Milner-Skudder signed for Toulon last year but never made an appearance for the French club as the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the Top 14.
The winger played 35 games for the Hurricanes from 2015 to 2019. He scored 12 tries in 13 Tests for the All Blacks.
