All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder leaves his teammates a stink surprise

Headlines 09/07/2018

He's certainly got gas, but All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder's owned up to leaving some in the dressing room for his teammates on Saturday night. 

The Hurricanes flier Milner-Skudder was caught on camera releasing some flatulence, as the players emerged for the second half of their match against the Blues at Westpac Stadium.

A clip of Milner-Skudder's fart and the incriminating wave behind the backside has gone viral on social media, so Andrew Gourdie and Jim Kayes gave him a chance to clear the air (so to speak) on RadioLIVE Sunday Sport.

"To be honest, I was just practicing my flick pass before getting out there for the second half," he said, joking he was the inspiration behind Beauden Barrett's spectacular play to set up Ngani Laumape's fourth try of the night. 

"I saw Colesy next to me as well, so i thought he was someone who will appreciate a bit of flatulence. It was probably a joke more than anything, with Colesy there trying to give him one, but obviously it's gone pretty viral.

"My phone was blowing up as soon as I got off the field and I thought 'I can't have played that well'."

"I shared it on my Instagram and my Facebook just to have a bit of a laugh at myself, and try and get people to see the funny side, which they have"

Some of his followers even suggested the winger may have to change his nickname from 'Skuds' to 'Skids'.

"I've heard that one a few times after last night's events," said Milner-Skudder. "I'm sure i'll be copping that one plenty over the next wee while." 

As if he hadn't put his teammates through enough on Saturday night, Milner-Skudder claimed he wasn't the worst offender when it came to dropping bombs - and he wasn't referring to the high ball.  

"Can't go past the front row, but Cory Jane, even though he's not in the group at the moment, he still loiters around the base with his commitments with the Lions squad, but he was someone who could let one rip quite frequently."

Jane offered his reply on social media. 

"HEARSAY!" he said on Twitter. 

"It's not what you know it's what you can prove ... @Nmilnerskudder clearly let one rip live of [sic] TV and waved it onto his injured captain Dane Coles so he could feel the brunt of it," Jane said, followed by the hashtag #Thats_Just_Not_Right.

Milner-Skudder hasn't heard the last of the incident. Hurricanes assistant coach Jason Holland told Gourdie and Kayes: "I'm sure that'll come up Monday morning.

"I actually wondered what that was when I came in at full-time, it was still lingering there. That'll be a Monday morning one alright."
