Carter, Crusaders on mission against Sharks

Carter, Crusaders on mission against Sharks

Star flyhalf Dan Carter leads nomadic New Zealand team the Crusaders into their impromptu Super 15 match in London acknowledging he "dodged a bullet" when the 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch last month.
The All Blacks No. 10 says he was lucky to emerge largely unscathed from the disaster that hit New Zealand's second biggest city on Feb. 22, killing more than 180 people.
Carter says there was a "bit of damage" to his home but "nothing compared to what some people have gone through, where they've lost family and friends."
With the Crusaders' stadium damaged, Carter's team is being forced to play its home games outside Christchurch, including Sunday's match against South African side the Sharks at Twickenham.
