Carter cleared

Daniel Carter is fit and available for selection for the Crusaders’ match against the Cheetahs on Saturday.

The All Blacks flyhalf will play his first game since last September. Carter injured his groin during the pool stages of the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand and missed the rest of the tournament, as well as four rounds of Super Rugby, as a result.

Carter is unlikely to start against the Cheetahs, but will feature from the bench.
