Having only been introduced to the game as a late substitute, Dan Carter turned the Champions Cup quarterfinal on its head for Racing 92.
Changing the game shortly after his second-half introduction, Dan Carter sent Twitter into meltdown in the final twenty minutes of Racing 92’s Champions Cup quarter-final with Clermont.
With Racing trailing by a point in the 62nd minute, a well-timed offload from Carter saw Marc Andreu running over to give the Parisian outfit the lead.
Although the pass looked as if it went forward, leaving Carter’s hands outside the 22 and reaching Andreu inside of it, the referee deemed that Carter’s hands had gone backwards and the try was controversially awarded.
Carter was also involved in another quickfire try from Racing moments later as Boris Palu crossed the whitewash to put the game to bed.
Munster will now travel to Bordeaux to take on Racing in the Champions Cup semi-final in three weeks time.
