Congratulations to Dan Carter Posted over 10 years ago

The Rugby Site would like to congratulate Dan Carter on receiving his 100th test cap for New Zealand. Carter joins an esteemed group of just five players to have reached the century, the others being; Richie McCaw, Keven Mealamu, Tony Woodcock and Mils Muliaina.

Carter made his test debut in 2003 against Wales, scoring 20 points, which was clearly a sign if things to come. Over the past 10 years he has amassed 1435 points in test match rugby scoring 29 tries, 254 penalty kicks and 255 conversions making him the highest points scorer in test match rugby history. Having twice been named as the IRB World Player of the Year, Dan Carter is rightly considered and respected as one of the games great players.

Many congratulations, Dan.
