Both Milner-Skudder, 24, and Proctor, 22, have proven themselves to be elusive members of the Hurricanes backline, and coach Chris Boyd said they would both be key figures in the team's future.

"They're both local products of the Hurricanes franchise, and it's no secret that both of these guys are exciting talents.

"Nehe and Matt will form part of a continuation of a powerful back three combination, and we look forward to having them with us for at least a couple more seasons."

Proctor said he was excited by the opportunity to stay at the club for another two years.

"The team's heading in a really good direction and I'm looking forward to contributing wherever I can to help us achieve the goals we set out to achieve at the start of each season," he said.

Manawatu's Milner-Skudder said debuting for the Hurricanes this season had been a bit of a dream come true, and he was stoked to be able to recommit for another two years.

"This team has such a strong brotherhood and I'm grateful that I've been given the opportunity to continue to be a part of it."
