Dan Carter could be the latest big name addition to the Major League Rugby after his spell with the Kobe Steelers came to an end in March.
Carter (38) spent two years in Japan but has showed any signs of retiring yet, prompting a possible move to the MLR where Rugby United New York are said to be interested in acquring the legendary flyhalves services.
Should Carter join them, he would the second New Zealand World Cup winner to have featured in the league after Ma’a Nonu started playing for San Diego Legion before the season came to a halt.

I’ve gone a bit quiet since the JRU announced they are cancelling all their competitions this season. I know it’s the right decision with what the world is going through at the moment but I would have loved to try help my @kobelcosteelers_official family win another top league, and I’m gutted I can’t do this. I want to thank the club, fans and my team mates for welcoming me and making the last two seasons some of the most enjoyable rugby I have ever played. The clubs future is looking very bright, and I’m glad I got to add my little piece to the @kobelcosteelers_official legacy. #kobelcosteelers #rugby
