Carter to join French club Racing Metro

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) All Blacks flyhalf Daniel Carter confirmed Thursday he will end his test career after next year's World Cup and join French club Racing Metro on a deal that could make him rugby's highest-paid player.

The 32-year-old Carter, the most prolific scorer in world rugby with 1,455 points in 102 tests, announced his decision at a news conference to join what is expected to be an exodus of leading test players to European clubs after the World Cup.

Veteran Wallabies utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper on Wednesday announced he will join France's Bordeaux-Begles at the end of 2015, as well.
