The great Dan Carter does not lower his arms despite his 38 years. He likes to play rugby and he shows it in every presentation. This time, he added another title to his historic rugby career with the team that gave him birth, Southbridge, which he led to the Coleman Shield, beating Waihora in the final, 40-32.
In his third game for the club this season, Carter helped Southbridge defend the Coleman Shield that was already in his possession. “It was difficult. It was absolutely incredible,” said the former All Blacks 10 who later referred to the match: “There was a good level of rugby, nice and open, many tries that were incredible. Today my teammates showed a lot of confidence in themselves to enter the second half very proud. This will be a great night at the club. “
The two-time world champion with the All Blacks in 2011 and 2015 was proud to contribute another title to the club that saw him grow: “this team has a lot of character because the same thing happened to us last week, we were down and we entered the second half , we improved and got the victory. The last two weeks were fantastic because they show the character and how much this team means to each of the players. This is a community, we come together and live for these Saturday afternoons. The goal is to get there at the end of a season like this and stay with the title of champion ”.
“Most of the guys I grew up with and played with are in the crowd with some beers partying. A lot of relatives, friends and people I went to school with. This was a difficult year for a lot of people, especially in this community. This it’s something to distract them and I’m happy to be a part of it, “added the back.
Carter still did not reveal if he will play next season and said that on Sunday he will surely feel the rigor of the activity: “tomorrow I will be a little sore, I have not made much contact in the last months and in the last weeks I tested the body a little, but it’s great, I love it. “
