Injured Carter on track for Hong Kong

All Blacks star flyhalf Dan Carter should be fit to play in their Bledisloe Cup match against Australia in Hong Kong in October, New Zealand captain Richie McCaw said Monday.

Carter underwent surgery last week on a long-term ankle injury after the All Blacks wrapped up this year's Tri-Nations championship with a 29-22 victory over South Africa.

He had been troubled by the ankle for more than three months and it started to become more of an aggravation towards the end of the Super 14 competition.

"Obviously Dan will miss our next match but the plan is for him to be available for Hong Kong," McCaw said in a tele-conference.

"I don't know 100 percent but he should be all right."

Carter, who broke the record for rugby union Test points earlier this month, will miss the All Blacks' final Tri Nations match against Australia in Sydney on September 11.

The Hong Kong clash is on October 30, ahead of a four-Test northern hemisphere tour that sees them play England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
