SYDNEY-All Blacks legend Dan Carter announced his return to Super Rugby at the age of 38 on Thursday, extending the career of the double Rugby World Cup winner and three-time world player of the year.

Carter has been a free agent since returning to New Zealand in March from Japan, where a virus-enforced shutdown ended his stint with Kobe Steelers.

"For me it is a chance to mentor some young players and to give back to New Zealand rugby," he added.
