Daniel William „Dan” Carter (born 5 March 1982) is a New Zealand rugby union player. Carter plays for Racing 92 and New Zealand’s national team, the All Blacks.

He was named the International Rugby Board player of the year in 2005, 2012 and 2015 (equaling the record three awards of Richie McCaw) and has won four Super Rugby titles with the Crusaders, and six Tri-Nations and Rugby Championships with the All Blacks. Carter was a key member of the 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cup-winning teams, becoming one of only twenty dual Rugby Union World Cup winners.
