Dan Carter recalled for New Zealand's tour of Europe

Dan Carter is named in the New Zealand squad for their European tour after recovering from the shoulder injury.

Dan Carter has been recalled to the New Zealand squad and is poised to win his 100th cap in this winter's Test against England.

The Crusaders fly-half missed the end of the All Blacks' triumphant Investec Rugby Championship campaign with a shoulder injury, but is fit to return for their European tour, which begins next month.

Following a match against Japan in Tokyo, New Zealand visit Paris to play France and then face England on November 17 at Twickenham, where Carter could bring up a century of international appearances.

Four uncapped players join the 31-year-old in the 36-man squad – prop Joe Moody, lock Dominic Bird, back-rower Luke Whitelock, and winger Frank Halai.

Carter's club teammate Matt Todd is not available due to a chest problem, but Steve Hansen has taken a chance on the fitness of Luke Romano, who is close to recovering from his adductor tendon injury.
