Carter, who is scheduled to link up with the Crusaders later this month, is currently in Taupo training for the year ahead.

Earlier this week Carter asked his 130,000 plus followers if they would like to help him with kicking practice.

"Hey guys. I'm doing the 1st week of my pre-season in Taupo but I need someone to return my kicks. Anyone keen?" Carter Tweeted.

The response was massive, and Carter selected some lucky fans.

Abi Cane sent son Josh Cane's 'application', with a photo of the under-10s rugby player holding a trout.

"Will catch any ball and teach you how to catch trout" might have tempted Carter, who has put pictures up on Twitter of him enjoying Taupo's magnificant trout fishing.

Logan Karauria, a 12-year-old first five-eighth was also chosen.

Dad Jason said via Twitter "this is Logan Karauria he's an absolute fan of yours plays 10/15 and would love a kicking sess"

Carter will reveal his third pick today, and will advise his fans as to the secret location in Taupo where he will be running his kicking and catching masterclass!
