Cape Town - All Blacks and Hurricanes wing Nehe Milner-Skudder's hopes of playing in the 2019 Rugby World Cup has suffered a further setback.

The 28-year-old, who also operate at fullback, will undergo another operation on his shoulder, which has prohibited him from taking part in any action in this year's Super Rugby tournament.

He is set to join French club Toulon next year, which could mean his days with New Zealand rugby are over.

Milner-Skudder has scored 12 tries in 13 Tests for New Zealand between 2015 and 2018.
