Dan Carter's classy try shows he is still at the top of his game

Dan Carter's classy try shows he is still at the top of his game

Sunday night’s Champions Cup Round 2 action from Welford Road proved, in part, that Dan Carter certainly still has plenty of magic left in the tank. However, it was not enough as the hosts got revenge for last season’s semi-final defeat. 

Carter’s classy play came as Racing were on attack and two dummies and a nice fend helped him to dot down for the score. He successfully converted to put Racing within a point.

Leicester’s shaky defense redeemed itself through Matthew Tait later, as he made a try-saving tackle on Carter, who the TMO eventually deemed grounded the ball too early. 

Opposing flhyalf Freddie Burns put the match away when he intercepted a pass and ran for a 70-meter try, as Leicester went on to win 27-17.

Leicester and Racing now sit 3rd and 4th in Pool One of the Champions Cup, respectively.

    :) We will probably make some changes in the upcoming months, so hopefully with that we can include things like what you've requested.

    Sorry, I don't mean "real" Dan Carter. I mean DC10. RD can we please get an "edit" option available for the comments?

    Disagree, the real Dan Carter would definitely say that.

    A comment like that deserves no respect. I'm referring to your wording wap. Real Dan would not say that, so it is easy to spot the fake. :)

    Pire, please show some respect. I am the highest paid player in rugby history, I have 2 world cup winner's medals, 3 IRB player of the year awards, I am the all time leading points scorer in super rugby and international test rugby... etc etc. Thanks, Jimmy. Dan Carter is genuinely my name, I played rugby for the best part of a decade. Mostly in the front row for my school and sixth form sides, so any similarities with DC10 did not go beyond our shared name. I tried to take it in good humour when people would call out my name in their attempted NZ accent, even if it was the 10th time it had happened that day.

    Got to agree with Mr Healey here. Good try but paper-thin defence from players who ought to do better.

    Au contraire Pire, I think it's an absolutely spiffing comment.
