Wellington - Dan Carter has been ruled out of the Crusaders' Super 14 rugby match against the Cheetahs in Christchurch on Saturday due to a hip joint injury.

The All Black flyhalf sustained the injury earlier in the week, but it was only expected to be a short-term problem, the New Zealand team said in a statement on Friday.

Reserve Dan Bowden would replace Carter in the starting lineup, allowing Tu Umaga-Marshall to make his match-day debut on the bench, the team added.

The Crusaders have won six out of their eight games and lie second in the table. The South Africa-based Cheetahs are second from bottom and all but out of semi-finals contention.
