Nehe Milner-Skudder might only have two caps to his name but will be part of the most experienced Test side ever on Sunday.

The All Blacks winger is set to win his third cap on the wing when the defending champions take on Argentina.

Milner-Skudder broke through into the side on the back his exceptional performances for the Hurricanes in Super Rugby.

He went on to score two tries on his debut for the All Blacks against Australia in Sydney.

“I have guys around me who have obviously been at World Cups before and experienced some high stress in big games so I can certainly go to them if I need a bit of help," he said. 

"The excitement is bubbling.

"I’ll definitely go back to that game [in Sydney] and draw off the crowd and the atmosphere there.

"It’ll be pretty similar at Wembley. It should be pretty sweet.”

Asked what Milner-Skudder had learned from those players in the New Zealand side with well over 100 caps such as Richie McCaw or Dan Carter, the rookie wasn't afraid to offer a humorous reply.

"How to get a bit more time on the TV and a few more adverts.”
