Dan Carter is a gifted playmaker, and one of the best players in the world. His running game, coupled with his deadly goal-kicking make him a lethal threat at fly-half. He made his debut for New Zealand in 2003 against Wales. He has since gone on to break a number of records. He has scored more Super Rugby points than any other player, has scored more Test tries than any other New Zealand fly half, and is currently locked in a see-saw battle with Jonny Wilkinson to be the top points scorer in Test Rugby. Carter, with over 1,200 points to his name, was chosen as the 2005 IRB World Player of the Year. He appeared at the 2003 and 2007 World Cups, scoring 88 points in the process.
