Carter wins rugby writers award

12 January 2016, 06:31

London - New Zealand legend Dan Carter has won the Rugby Union Writers' Club Pat Marshall Memorial Award as the sport's personality of the year for 2015.

Carter was awarded the prize at the club's annual dinner in London on Monday and follows in the footsteps of previous winners including Jonah Lomu and Jonny Wilkinson.

The 33-year-old fly-half has amassed 112 caps during a 12-year Test career that reached its pinnacle with victory over Australia in last year's World Cup final.

He was subsequently named world player of the year for an unprecedented third time.

"There are some amazing names on this trophy, so to have my name alongside these legends is very humbling," said Carter, who is the fifth All Black to win the award.

"There's David Kirk who helped win the inaugural World Cup in 1987. Obviously there's Jonah back in 1995 -- an amazing athlete and top guy. Sean Fitzpatrick is there too.

"Jonny Wilkinson in 2003 -- who could argue with that? It's a huge honour to have my name sketched on this and be a part of history."
