Dan Carter to end All Blacks career after World Cup for Racing Metro

18 December 2014:World rugby’s leading points scorer Dan Carter will end his international career after the 2015 World Cup to become the sport’s highest-paid player.

The 32-year-old New Zealand fly-half will join wealthy French side Racing Metro on a three-year contract.

It effectively ends his All Black career as New Zealand do not select those playing overseas.

“It will be an awesome adventure for me and my family,” said Carter, who will earn a reported 1.5m euros per year.

Carter made his All Blacks debut in 2003 and has won 102 caps, one of only five centurions for the All Blacks, amassing 1,457 points.
Now fit again after breaking his leg in August, he previously played in France for Perpignan from 2008-09.

“I am sure all New Zealand rugby fans will celebrate Dan’s remaining time in New Zealand and he will leave with New Zealand rugby’s very best wishes,” said the national team’s rugby chief executive Steve Tew.

“Dan has been incredibly loyal to New Zealand Rugby over the years and for that we thank him.”
