WIN an adidas ball signed by All Black legend Dan Carter

All Black Dan Carter and reporter Meghan Mutrie challenged rising star Fletcher Smith to a series of kicking challenges at Christchurch Boys High recently. Dan got involved himself, and today we've got the ball he kicked as part of a giveaway for RD visitors.

The trickshot videos are part of the adidas launch of the Predator Incurza, and the Everything's a Target campaign. The boot has been designed for superior accuracy in kicking, thanks to a whole host of improved features and customisations.

Former Canadian Women's Rugby star Mutrie, who you may also know from her appearances on The Crowd Goes Wild, spent the day with Carter and Smith, and says that the All Black flyhalf is not only one of the greatest players of his generation, but is a genuinely good guy too.

"I may have misled Rugbydump when I promised a behind-the-scenes peek at Dan Carter from the making of the adidas Predator Incurza ad," Meghan told RD.

"Where a lot of celebrities and professional sportsmen could be exposed for diva-like behaviour, I'm happy to report that Santa Claus is real: Carter genuinely is just a great guy.

"We were on-location at Carter's alma mater in Christchurch and not exactly subtle - between the cameras, the steamroller and the presence of international rugby's leading points scorer, a small crowd started to gather.

"I watched Carter (not in a creepy way, promise) happily sign every autograph and pose for every photo during the nine hour day and not once did he roll his eyes or even sigh heavily or make any sort of comment when he returned to our group. He was good chat, too.

"So, he's a great person, let alone athlete, but it was really cool to see him legitimately nail all of those trick shots without any 'TV magic' - he even stayed late after the shoot until he successfully sunk an impossible off-the-wall-into-a-bin shot."

You can WIN the ball used in the shoot, which has been personally signed by the great man. There was actually only one of them on offer from adidas, so that's the one a Rugbydump user will win.

If you could pick your Dream XV from the last 30 years, would Carter be your number ten?
