By Raniera Harrison

All Blacks star Nehe Milner-Skudder speaks exclusively as he prepares to build up for another trip of a lifetime.

The Ngāti Porou and Tapuika boy has just returned from the Rugby World Cup and has now set his sights on furthering his horizons with the Barbarians FC side.

The teams first started in 1908, it has seen some of the greatest rugby players ever.

“To think of whose put that jersey on and what it represents oh yeah nah I'm really excited and I can’t wait to get over there,” says Nehe.

It will be the third time Nehe has played Argentina this year but the first time he's lined up alongside some of the stars of the rugby world.

But for the Māori boy out of Taihape, there's one player he's looking forward to playing with.

He says, “The big man, Nemani Nadolo, yeah he's been causing a bit of havoc this year with Super Rugby and even at the World Cup, I think everyone knows what sort of player he is just a huge man with some incredible skill."

Aside from all the hype ahead of the game, the objective remains simple.

“Play a bit of code with them, it'll be huge and I'm really looking forward to it,” says Nehe.
