All Blacks great Dan Carter involved in handbags during grassroots game in Canterbury

BY Shaywaterworth  ·  Saturday Jul 4, 2020

All Blacks legend Dan Carter played a full 80 minutes for grassroots club Southbridge on Saturday in the Coleman Shield and got involved in a scuffle on the pitch.

The 38-year-old ran out for the club side as he aims to reach match fitness for the Blues in Super Rugby Aotearoa and he was reportedly close to the action when tempers flared against West Melton in Canterbury.

Fortunately nothing more than some pushing and finger pointing happened to Carter but one of his teammates was shown red. The legendary fly half has since released footage of him celebrating in the changing rooms after full time.

“It is all part of club rugby,’’ said Carter. “I was actually just asking the ref how long there was to go because I was ready to get inside and have a shower. It is all part of the game. That is the beauty of club rugby like that, it is all forgotten after the 80th minute.”

Unsurprisingly with the GOAT playing number 10 Southbridge won the game 54-14.

Other footage from local fans shows Carter slotting a conversion and the veteran took the time to take plenty of selfies in the clubhouse after the match.
