NEWS: All Blacks star Dan Carter suffered a calf injury and was forced to sit out Racing 92's 16-3 Top 14 win at Bayonne on Saturday after getting hurt in the warm-up, coach Laurent Labit revealed.

"Dan felt a little twinge in his calf during the warm-up, so we decided that we didn't want to take a risk," said Labit.

Carter's absence allowed South Africa's Johannes Goosen to move from fullback to fly-half with Brice Dulin taking his place in the No.15 shirt.
