All Blacks Legend Dan Carter Set For Sensational Move

Legendary All Black Dan Carter has reportedly signed for the Blues ahead of Super Rugby Aotearoa which kicks off in New Zealand next week.
Carter’s without a club after leaving Kobe Steelers in Japan with the Blues said to be chasing him for “some time” according to Stuff and an injury to fullback Stephen Perofeta may fast track the move.
The two-time World Player of the Year is currently in Auckland with his family and would link up with current All Blacks playmaker Beauden Barrett who signed for the Blues last year but is yet to make his debut.
Carter may be 38 but is still in excellent shape and starred for the Steelers as they won the Top League in his first season. He’s also apparently willing to take a hefty pay cut to give back to New Zealand rugby with the deal only costing the Blues $1800-a-week.
The sight of Carter pulling on a Blues jersey is unlikely to sit well with Crusaders supporters, however.
Carter played 141 games for the reigning Super Rugby champions, winning three titles, before shifting north with Racing 92 after calling time on his illustrious test career following the 2015 World Cup.
