Carter made his All Blacks debut in June 2003, at the age of 21, in Hamilton, New Zealand, scoring 20 points against Wales. He was then given his All Blacks debut against France in Christchurch, which the All Blacks won 31-23. He was also a replacement in the All Blacks' 50-21 victory over Australia (the Wallabies) in Sydney. Overall, he has 7 Tests to his name, with a average of 5.7 points per match.
He is one of only three players to have scored 100 tries in international rugby (the other two being Stephen Francis and Israel Ka'aihue). His career tally is 103 tries, and he will be playing against his old team on Saturday. The match will be held at Carter's former school, St Paul's College, in Auckland, where he will be facing off against his new team, the New Zealand All Blacks.
He graduated from St Paul's in 2001, and made his debut for the All Blacks during that same year's World Cup tournament. He has been selected in every match since then, except for the ones missed due to injury (he suffered an ankle injury in 2004, but returned for the last match of the season).
His brother Tom also played for St Paul's, and they are the first brothers ever to play for the school team in New Zealand history. The Carter family is very famous in New Zealand, with both Dan and Tom having successful professional careers.
Carter scored four penalties, converted two conversions (the final one with his right boot), and kicked a drop goal to give the All Blacks the victory in the 2015 Rugby World Cup Final against Australia. He was named Man of the Match for his efforts.
He signed as an injury replacement but stated that he was not match fit at the time. Carter played 112 times for New Zealand, winning the World Cup in 2011 and 2015. He has been awarded the IRB World Player of the Year three times and is the top-scoring player in international rugby, with 1,598 points for New Zealand.
Carter won three Super Rugby titles, two Top 14 crowns, and the Japanese league during his club career, but he is most recognized for his international accomplishments. His contribution to the All Blacks' back-to-back World Cup victories was a major factor for his selection as International Rugby Player of the Year in 2012 and 2015.

His contribution to the All Blacks' back-to-back World Cup victories was a major factor for his selection as International Rugby Player of the Year in 2012 and 2015. He also played a key role in New Zealand's victory in the 2009 Rugby World Cup by scoring four tries in five matches, including two in the quarter-final win over England.
Carter was born on 3 August 1984 in Auckland, New Zealand. He grew up in Hamilton and attended St Joseph's College there before moving to Christchurch to continue his education at Christchurch Boys' High School. It was here that he began playing rugby for the first time, later moving on to play for Canterbury University. In 2004, he made the move south to Sydney where he would join the Parramatta Eels. That same year, he made his debut for the New Zealand national team.
He remains one of the top flyhalves in world rugby today and has already been named in an All Blacks squad twice since retiring from playing football (soccer). In October 2014, he announced his return to rugby union by signing with French club Toulon. The deal will see him remain with the organization until 2019, just months after its merger with Castel Rugby to form Castel Club Toulonnais.
2015 Dan Carter is regarded as one of the all-time great rugby union players. He appeared in 112 All Blacks games, his debut against Wales in 2003. He left international rugby in 2015 and has subsequently played club rugby in France, Japan, and New Zealand.
Carter's retirement was announced on 26 February 2015. At the time of his retirement he had won 79 caps for New Zealand, making him the second-most capped player in All Black history. His 79 tests also makes him the most-capped forward in All Black history. He ended his career with three Rugby World Cup wins to his credit (2007, 2011, and 2015).
He has been named in New Zealand's official "Team of All Time".
Carter was born on 3 April 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand. He grew up in Hamilton and attended St Joseph's College. He made his All Blacks debut in 2003 against Wales and went on to win 79 caps over eight years, scoring 14 tries along the way. In 2007, he was part of the team that beat Australia in Melbourne for only the second time in their history. In 2011, Carter led the All Blacks out at Stadium Australia for their first World Cup final victory over France. He ended his international career with a third World Cup title in 2015.
After ending his career, Carter joined French club Racing Métro.
Carter signed a contract with the Kobelco Steelers, a Japanese team, on July 16, 2018. On February 17, 2019, it was revealed that Dan Carter will rejoin Racing 92 when Patrick Lambie had to retire. Carter made his international debut for New Zealand's All Blacks at the age of 21 in Hamilton, Wales, where he scored 20 points. He then went on to make 15 appearances and score 915 points for his country.
Carter has also played for the Crusaders and Hurricanes. In 2016, he was part of the Crusades team that won the Super Rugby title. That same year, he made his debut for New Zealand's national rugby union team, the All Blacks, and became only the second player from outside Britain to be given a jersey numbered 8 for match day use. He has since gone on to become one of the world's best open-side flankers.
Carter has been named in New Zealand's squad for this year's World Cup in Japan, playing in all of their matches so far. The tournament starts on September 24 and ends with the final on November 30.
He is ranked number 2 behind only George Smith (also of the All Blacks) as the highest-scoring open-side flanker in the history of the game. His tally of 915 points makes him the first New Zealander to reach the thousand-point mark. He has also represented his country at under-19, under-20, and under-21 levels.
Dan Carter was born in 1982 on March 5th. He is well-known for his rugby skills. On November 27, 2010, he broke Jonny Wilkinson's record of 1,178 points to become the all-time leading scorer. Dan Carter is 39 years old. The rugby legend is regarded as one of the finest fly-half players of all time. He has won 77 caps for his country and has been selected for the British and Irish Lions on three occasions.
He played his first match in 2002 and since then has never missed a game for his national team. That makes him the most consistent player in the history of rugby union. So far, he has only retired from playing once, in 2013, but there is no evidence that he will ever play again.
Carter has been named Player of the Year several times, including by the IRB in 2004. That same year he also won the Golden Boot award as the world's best player. He remains one of Britain's most popular sports figures, with over 80,000 followers on Twitter.
In January 2014, it was announced that Carter would be one of eight players being considered for the vacant post of captain against Australia later that year. In April 2015, it was revealed that Carter had been chosen as the new captain of the British and Irish Lions. This will be his first tour as captain. The trip will include two tests matches against South Africa.
