ALL BLACKS flanker Jerome Kaino will miss the remainder of Super Rugby as he requires surgery on his bung shoulder.
Kaino, who suffered the injury during the 29-14 loss to the Chiefs in round two, will go under the knife on Wednesday after consulting with a specialist last week and is expected to be sidelined for six months.
