RUMOUR | Premiership club have approached legendary All Black Dan Carter

Harlequins could interested in recruiting All Blacks legend Dan Carter on a short-term contract.

Carter, a three-time World Player of the Year, had been a free agent since returning to New Zealand in March from Japan, where a virus-enforced shutdown ended his stint with Kobe Steelers.

The two-time World Cup winner, who has been linked with a move to Major League Rugby, then announced a shock Super Rugby comeback with the Blues.

However, according to RUCK Sources, Quins are keen to land the fly-half on a short-term contract following that deal, thought to be three months, for the start of the 2020/21 Gallagher Premiership.

The London club are keen for the legendary fly-half to work with Marcus Smith as the England youngster continues his rapid development at Twickenham Stoop.


It’s then expected that Carter, as planned, would make his move to Major League Rugby in the USA.

QUICK FACTS: Carter played the first of his 112 Tests for the All Blacks in 2003, scored a record 1,598 points during his international career and was the World Player of the Year in 2005, 2012 and 2015.
