Dan Carter: Will win his 100th cap against England
Dan Carter will win his 100th cap for New Zealand in Saturday's QBE International against England at Twickenham.
The talented fly-half will lead the backline as the All Blacks look to gain revenge for last year's shock defeat to England, with the match live on Sky Sports 1 HD.
Carter made his debut against Wales in June 2003, with the then 21-year-old announcing himself on the world stage with an impressive 20-point haul.
Since then he has gone on to score 1,435 international points and is one the greatest No 10s of all time.
New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen has opted to make just one change from the line-up that edged out France in Paris, with Julian Savea replacing Cory Jane on the wing.
There is a further alteration on the bench with lock Luke Romano preferred to Sam Cane.
Hansen said: "This is a Test match we are very much looking forward to.
"We were completely outplayed by them last year but this is an opportunity for us to see if we have improved our game to the point where we can be competitive. The players are excited because this is what Test rugby is all about."
"We are expecting a really physical game with huge intensity, but also a game that will have high levels of energy, pace and skills.
"We know the England coaching staff have done a lot of homework so this may be a game where we add a few new things they haven't seen before."
