Carter still in doubt

6:41 pm on 23 June 2010

The All Blacks are still not sure whether Dan Carter will benefit for the second test against Wales in Hamilton on Saturday night.

The first-five's had tight calf muscle since scoring two tries and kicking 17 points on Saturday night in the All Blacks' 42-9 win in Dunedin.

He had a run this afternoon and assistant coach Steve Hansen says there'll be a definite decision tomorrow.

If he can't play Aaron Cruden's set for his first start after coming off the bench against Ireland and at Carisbrook.

Carter's limited involvement has given Cruden an extended run in training this week.
