All Blacks winger Nehe Milner‑Skudder has been ruled out for the next six months after injuring his shoulder in the match against the Springboks.
The 26‑year‑old was forced from the field after dislocating his right shoulder.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said Milner‑Skudder would need surgery.
The Hurricanes flyer is the third All Black to succumb to season‑ending shoulder injuries this season, following rookie fullback Jordie Barrett and World Cup winning loosehead prop Joe Moody into the casualty ward.
This was Milner‑Skudder's third serious injury in the past 18 months.
