Rugby-All Blacks winger Milner-Skudder discolates shoulder

CAPE TOWN, Oct 8 (Reuters) - New Zealand winger Nehe Milner-Skudder suffered a dislocated right shoulder in Saturday’s Rugby Championship win over South Africa, coach Steve Hansen has said.

The 26-year-old, who is now set to miss the All Blacks’ Bledisloe Cup test against Australia later this month and the end-of-year tour to Europe, had to be taken off after landing awkwardly just before half-time at Newlands.

Milner-Skudder previously discolated his left shoulder in 2016 and broke a bone in his foot during the early stages of this year’s Super Rugby campaign.

Hansen also said flyhalf Beauden Barrett had suffered a concussion in Saturday’s game, which New Zealand won 25-24, but should recover quickly. (Reporting by Mark Gleeson; Editing by Peter Rutherford)
