Cruden to get some advise from Carter

7:16 am on 19 October 2011

The All Black first five Aaron Cruden says he'll make contact with Dan Carter again this week as he prepares to play the biggest match of his brief rugby career.

22-year-old Cruden will again guide the All Blacks around the field in Sunday night's World Cup final against France at Eden Park.

Cruden says not a lot changes for him this week and they're not trying to think about the game too much just yet, but he'll be seeking some advice from Carter.

He says Carter sent him a text before the semi final wishing him the best and he'll be going to Carter again to pick his brain before the final.
