Hurricanes full-back Nehe Milner-Skudder has been sidelined by injury ahead of their meeting with the Highlanders in Dunedin on Saturday.

The counter-attacking threat bruised his leg during the Hurricanes' 52-10 defeat to the Brumbies last week.

Taranaki fly-half James Marshall will stand in for Milner-Skudder at Forsyth Barr Stadium, while Jason Woodward moves down to the bench. 

Milner-Skudder had one of the few bright moments during their beating by the Brumbies when broke through to set up a try for centre Ngani Laumape and will be missed on Saturday.

Hurricanes (revised): 15 James Marshall, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Vince Aso, 12 Ngani Laumape, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara (c), 8 Victor Vito, 7 Ardie Savea, 6 Brad Shields, 5 Mark Abbott, 4 Blade Thomson, 3 Jeff Toomaga-Allen, 2 Leni Apisai, 1 Reggie Goodes 
Replacements: 16 Ricky Riccitelli, 17 Chris Eves, 18 Loni Uhila, 19 Vaea Fifita, 20 Callum Gibbins, 21 Jamison Gibson-Park, 22 Jason Woodward, 23 Willis Halaholo
