Dan Carter makes dreams come true for Dublin youngster
Dan Carter will sit out the game this Sunday at the Aviva but the All Blacks star has been keeping busy in Ireland and today came face-to-face with one of his biggest fans.
While we always like to see the best players in the world, with Ireland reeling after the disappointing defeat to the Wallabies, from an Irish perspective it might be no harm that Carter will miss the game with an Achilles injury, not that he has been idle on these shores.
You may remember a while back that a budding Irish player, George Morgan posted a YouTube video of his rugby skills called ‘Hey All Blacks, check this out’, and tht is exactly what the number 10 did.
Today the two came face to face at the Castleknock Hotel, with the legendary outhalf giving the young player a pair of his boots as well as some advice.
Fair play to Carter for the kind gesture, though we're sure George wouldn't have said no to the snazzy gold pair the New Zealander was given at the weekend, but hey, a free pair of boots is a free pair of boots.
We’re just hoping that the rest of the All Blacks show as much charity on Sunday in the Aviva as we seek a first ever win over the World Champions.
