The fifth most prolific point-scorer in Super rugby after six seasons as a Crusader, Daniel Carter entered the 2008 Super 14 just 229 points shy of becoming the first player to 1000 points. The Southbridge junior plundered a record 221 points in the victorious 2006 Crusade, and has maintained an average in excess of 13 points per match for the Crusaders, and 15 per game for his country. The 2005 IRB Player of the Year, Carter has already scored the most Test tries by an All Black first-five-eighth. He is also now the second most prolific point-scorer in New Zealand Test history, having surpassed Grant Fox’s tally of 645 in 2007.

Wat Wikipedia van die veelsydige speler se:

In 2003, Carter made his All Blacks debut at age 21 in Paris, France, scoring 3 points. He was then capped against France in Christchurch, which the All Blacks won 31–23. He was also a substitute in a match against the Australia (the Wallabies) in Sydney, which the All Blacks won 50–21. Carter was then included in New Zealand’s 2003 Rugby World Cup squad, where he first gained serious international attention. Carter spent much of the latter stages of the tournament on the bench leaving New Zealand without a specialist goal-kicker. However, he did play in the games against Italy in Melbourne, which the All Blacks won 70–7, and the wins over Canada and Tonga. Although he has been an All Black since 2003 he only secured a permanent position as the first five-eighth in the team during the 2004 tour to the United Kingdom and France displacing Carlos Spencer. He had been playing as a second five-eighths up until the end of the 2004 Tri-Nations. After Carter’s performance in the second All Blacks Test against the British and Irish Lions in 2005, he was hailed as the next big thing in world rugby. He scored two tries, five penalties, and four conversions. He ended the match with 33 points, smashing the previous All Blacks record of 18 points in a Lions Test (Carter’s second-half total of 22 points by itself was sufficient to top this).He has currently scored a total of 676 test points (21 tries, 122 conversions, 108 penalties, 1 drop goal) in 44 tests, at the outstanding average of 15.4 points a game. The All Blacks have only lost five games that Carter has featured in since his debut in June 2003 [1]. He is often referred to simply as “Dan” or “DC”.
