All Blacks star Dan Carter to stay in New Zealand

All Blacks star Dan Carter to stay in New Zealand

The New Zealand Rugby Union has signed Daniel Carter to a new four-year contract, ensuring the star flyhalf will continue to play for the All Blacks after this year's World Cup.
The 29-year-old Carter said he had received some "significant offers" to play overseas, particularly in France, but decided to remain in New Zealand through 2015.
His new contract includes a provision which allows him to take a break from the game, either to play overseas or leave rugby for an extended period.
The re-signing of Carter was a key objective for New Zealand rugby, which expects a large number of top players to take up overseas contracts after the World Cup ends in October.
