Wales appear more anxious on prospect of Carter playing than the All Blacks

The Wales rugby side appears more anxious on the prospects of Dan Carter playing for the All Blacks this weekend in Cardiff than the New Zealand camp.

Carter has again sat out training, due to a calf injury he suffered in the win over Australia in Tokyo, with coach Graham Henry due to name his side tomorrow morning.

Stephen Donald would likely start in Carter's place and former Welsh first five and now the side's kicking coach Neil Jenkins, says Carter's absence would make the All Blacks a different proposition.

Jenkins says while Donald is a capable player the All Blacks are much more of a complete side with Carter guiding them around the field.
