Dan Carter’s experience, composure, and general ability to direct his team around the field was to the fore as the Crusaders’ beat the competition leading Chiefs in Hamilton on the weekend, and his assured performance was a great advertisement for adidas’ new Predator Incurza boots.
Developed specifically for rugby players who are frequently required to kick in a match, the new Predators, the latest in adidas’ iconic range, feature two particular panels, the Precision Zone and the Sweet Spot, which enhance accuracy and connection with the ball.
The striking black, royal blue and bright lime design gives the boots a memorable look, while the ground-breaking technology employed by the footwear giant ensures they are their most comfortable, form fitting boot yet.
Carter, who missed his opportunity to lift the World Cup with the All Blacks in 2011 when a groin injury ruled him out halfway through the competition, has played all his professional rugby for the Canterbury-based Crusaders, except for a brief sabbatical with French side Perpignan. The champion first-five is the current world record holder for most points scored in test rugby, and is widely regarded as the greatest Number 10 the All Blacks have ever seen.
