Blues avoid mind games with the Crusaders

Carter who won three Super Rugby titles during his time with Christchurch based side hasn't been named in the Blues squad for the top of the table Super Rugby Aotearoa clash on Saturday night.

Carter signed with the Blues last month as injury cover but is yet to play for the side.

While the sight of him in a Blues jersey might have been hard for Crusaders fans to swallow his return to the field has been eagerly anticipated.

Monster Jordie Barrett penalty beats Dan Carter's record

Until Sunday, when Jordie Barrett took aim at Estadio José Amalfitani, Buenos Aires, for the Hurricanes against the Jaguares.

Barrett boomed over the monster goal in the fifth minute of the Super Rugby match, which the commentators put at 63m.

Comparing footage of both kicks, taken behind the 10m line, Barrett's certainly looked further.

And Barrett's didn't just clear the crossbar - it sailed over the dead ball line in a remarkable display.
