If I were to say the best fly half of all time I would pick Barry John, however he does not fit into the last 30 years bracket which obviously makes Carter a strong candidate. However, although he is obviously a phenomenal player and clearly the greatest ten of his generation I would have to say Michael Lynagh would be my choice for what he achieved with Australia, a side not quite the strength of New Zealand in winning the world cup as vice captain and breaking the points scoring record, (which of course Carter has done since.) In a few years time I might conceive Carter to be the very best fly half of the last thirty years and quite possibly of all time,but it would be easier to suggest this when he has retired and we can see how much he is missed.
