Former All Black and Crusaders legend Dan Carter has joined the Auckland Blues.
Today the Blues confirmed the signing of Carter as injury cover for the upcoming Super Rugby Aotearoa season.
The 38-year-old will join the side as cover for Stephen Perofeta. He is out indefinitely with a foot injury.
Current Blues coach Leon MacDonald and Carter played alongside each other for Canterbury, the Crusaders and the All Blacks.
The three-time World Rugby Player of the Year left New Zealand after playing a key role in the All Blacks’ 2015 World Cup victory. He went to France’s Racing 92, then Japan’s Kobelco Steelers.
