Dan Carter’s Opposite Number Is An Irishman In His First Game For Metro


Dan Carter makes his long-awaited debut for Racing 92 this weekend and the first man he will face at 10 is a familiar face for Irish fans.

JJ Hanrahan wanted to leave Munster to get more game time after sitting on the bench too often, and the Irish former Junior World Player of the Year nominee JJ Hanrahan is finally getting his wish.

Hanrahan has made a flying start to life as a Saint, and has been rewarded by Northampton coach Jim Mallinder by retaining the out-half jersey for their Champions Cup game this weekend. Hanrahan is named in a strong team, and his star performance last week keeps regular fly-half Stephen Myler on the bench.

Munster fans must be fuming.
