Daniel Carter played his 100th game of Super Rugby last weekend when he faced the Hurricanes, the side he made his 2003 debut against. Here's a superbly made video that features great footage from the last nine years, and words from Dan himself.
Despite having been injured for a large part of the campaign, late last year Carter added a Rugby World Cup winners medal to his hugely impressive list of achievements over the years.
Multiple Super Rugby titles, Tri Nations wins, and victory over the British & Irish Lions all came about through the supreme influence of a man who is quite possibly the most gifted, and well rounded - in more than one way - number ten we've seen, or will see, for quite some time.
James from Whero Films sat down with New Zealand's record points scorer for a chat to discuss yet another milestone, his impressive achievement of reaching 100 Super Rugby games. The result is an insightful interview, and a quality video packed with some of Carter's best bits.
This season he's come back from injury and eased into the competition at center, or second five eigth, a role the 30 year-old says has been good for his development. He's cited playing outside of Andrew Mehrtens, Carlos Spencer, and Aaron Mauger as being valuable lessons in his career.
Against the Hurricanes last weekend it was another memorable occasion for Carter as he not only scored a try, but his team came away with a 42-14 bonus-point win. After watching this awesome video, you can view highlights of that game in our archived Super Rugby section.
