PIC: Who knew New Zealand's Dan Carter and One Direction's Niall Horan were pals?
We never knew Dan was such a big fan.
As the Rugby World Cup takes place in England and Wales, Dan Carter took some time out ahead of New Zealand's next match to catch up with someone we can only assume is a personal hero of his, Niall Horan.
Dan and Niall, together at last.
There's a decent joke about the All Blacks only moving in one direction towards the final of the 2015 competition, but we can't think of it right now, plus we'll see how friendly the pair are if Ireland and New Zealand potentially meet in the quarter-finals.
Some nice words here from the Kiwi legend about the Mullingar music man. Of course, if we got free tickets to anything at all we'd be saying nice things too.
Nice to finally meet @NiallOfficial & even cooler to see how grounded he still is. Thanks for the tix mate. pic.twitter.com/1D3OWLnCeM
