Highlanders players will be part of club rugby.

Highlanders assistant coach Tony Brown said this week players not involved in Super Rugby Aotearoa games would play for clubs in the Dunedin club competition.

The competition was of a good standard and the players needed to stay match-fit, he said.

Players had been allocated to clubs and would be out in full force on Saturday.

Under the higher alert levels, the players were not going to play club rugby as they had to stay in the Highlanders bubble but that had obviously changed.

Nehe Milner-Skudder has been allocated to Zingari-Richmond. But if he returns and, if it is through club rugby, has still not become clear.

He continues to work his way back to fitness and is doing light contact work, head coach Aaron Mauger said last week.
