All Blacks star Nehe Milner-Skudder has extended his stay at the Hurricanes, signing a three-year contract extension.

The 26-year-old, who debuted for the national side in 2015, said he had no hesitation in re-signing with the Canes.

“Being part of the Hurricanes for the past three years has been an awesome experience and though I wasn’t able to play a big part on the field last year, winning the Super Rugby trophy for the first time only reinforced my view that the club is building something special,” Milner-Skudder said.

“It’s been an absolute honour to represent my country and wear the All Blacks jersey and the only way to do that again is to stay in New Zealand.

“Hopefully I can play well enough to be considered for selection again, but as always there is some massive competition there, so my whole focus right now is just getting back on the field and trying to put my best foot forward with the Canes.”

Milner-Skudder has played 17 matches for the Hurricanes since making his debut in 2015.
