All Black Nostalgia

Dan Carter is returning to New Zealand from his time playing in Perpignan, France and in the first of an exclusive two part interview with The Independent, Carter “makes an unequivocal statement about a possible future conflict of emotions between his homeland and a new life in Europe.” “I would say I have a feel for the two of them now. New Zealand can be difficult at times, but the rewards are so much better. Playing for [France] and winning competitions still give special pleasures,” Carter says. “Because of the injury, I now want to play again. It’s been good here and I have had a great time but I am ready to return to my Kiwi lifestyle. I’m really hungry to play again. Playing for the All Blacks is still the most important thing for me.”
