Dan Carter’s Dream team players he chose can beat any squad from any generation of rugby.
Way out in front as the leading points scorer in international rugby history, with 1,598 points from his 112 caps. Throw in a further 1,708 points for the Crusaders and the fly-half’s impact on the game cannot be emphasised enough.
There was to be injury-enforced World Cup frustration in 2007 and 2011, but he ended his Test career on the perfect note as he produced a Man of the Match display in the 2015 final to guide the All Blacks to glory. A fitting farewell.
