Carter shift tipped
Dan Carter is expected to finish his playing career in Japan next year, according to French news reports. The bi-weekly rugby newspaper Midi-Olympique has reported the 112-test All Black will leave Paris club Racing 92 in June to take up a lucrative deal with a Japanese team. The 35-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Racing 92 and is reportedly close to agreeing which Japanese club he’ll sign with, for what’s likely to be his last contract as a professional player. Carter left New Zealand rugby after the successful 2015 World Cup campaign and last year helped his club win the Top 14.
