Dan Carter’s final act on rugby’s biggest stage — that ‘goofy-footed’ conversion of Beauden Barrett’s try in the 2015 Rugby World Cup final — saw him exit the international arena as the game’s greatest points-scorer. In 112 test matches for the All Blacks, the majestic first-five (that’s flyhalf for those who nod to the north) amassed a staggering 1598 points at an average of 14.27 per game. To put that number into real perspective, at the time of writing, no active player was within 500 points of his tally. And, remarkably, no other player with 500 or more international points had achieved a higher average per game.

From that sublime debut against Wales in 2003 to his pièce de résistance against the British & Irish Lions at Wellington in 2005, and on to that unforgettable finish in 2015, Dan Carter: 1598 takes readers on an absorbing, test-by-test journey, curated in magnificent imagery and told in his own words.

Restricted to only 1,000 copies, the signed limited edition of Dan Carter: 1598 is a beautifully cloth-bound career monograph, with every detail considered in close collaboration with Dan himself. This book is a true collector’s item that will take pride of place on the bookshelves and coffee tables of rugby’s biggest fans.
