New Zealand v Argentina - The Rugby Championship

The game’s leading points scorer in history, Carter is arguably rugby’s greatest fly-half as well.

Winning his first cap against Wales in 2003 at just 21 years old, he started along the path of rugby immortality with 20 points.

Although he did not become a regular in the All Blacks side until 2004, he quickly established himself as the pre-eminent No 10 in the world, dazzling 2005’s touring British & Irish Lions with his footwork, speed, offloading, passing ability, and his pinpoint kicking. The 33-year-old has twice been named IRB Player of the Year.

Carter missed New Zealand 2011 World Cup final win due to a groin injury, which will only make him more determined to sign off his All Black career in style with another victory this time round.
