Former All Black Dan Carter is out injured – and wondering if he’s cursed as a captain.
Carter was captaining his French club side Racing 92 last weekend against Lyon before tearing his right adductor during the first half.
Carter noted on Wednesday morning that he has captained a side twice – and on both occasions he was injured.
“Sometimes life throws you a curve ball,” he said on Facebook.
“The first time in my career I got asked to captain I ruptured my left adductor back in 2011. The second time I got a chance to captain was last Saturday & I unfortunately got a tear on my right adductor.
“Best I leave the captaincy to the captains haha. Time to work hard on my rehab to come back stronger.”
Carter's previous groin injury ruled him out of all rugby for six months.
