He was world champion (twice), the Super Rugby, the Rugby Championship and even the French Top 14. But Dan Carter is not satisfied, and at 38 years of age, he will go for an achievement that he has not yet achieved: to become champion with Southbridge, the team that saw him born as a player.
This Saturday, the starter who was chosen three times as the player of the year (2005, 2012 and 2015) will start when his team meets Waihora in the Ellesmere final.
From New Zealand, they also point out that this Saturday could be Carter’s last high-level match for whom throughout his career he played 112 test matches with the New Zealand team.
A striking fact is that, for the decisive match, there will be a limit of 300 spectators, due to the Covid-19 level 2 regulations. They will be distributed in three different areas and in groups of 100 people.
This will be Carter’s third game in the Southbridge jersey of the season. Will he get the title he lacks?
