Dan Carter is out of the Rugby World Cup 2011, and that bums me a bit. I’m a newbie rugby fan, and the guy has been my favorite in the few matches of the All Blacks that I’ve seen. Apart from him, Richie McCaw and Richard Kahui were ruled out for their last match in Pool A. Yep, three of my favorites out due to injuries.
That said, I’m glad Colin Slade stepped up to the plate to fill in Carter’s shoes.
And I have a new favorite in Zac Guildford, who scored four tries in the All Blacks’ 79-15 demolition of Canada.
Here’s a bonus Sonny Bill Williams, because you know you can’t resist those tattoos. And of course, because he also had a try across his name.
