Paris - All Blacks legend Dan Carter has been named at centre for Racing 92's European Champions Cup pool 3 match at Scarlets on Sunday.

The world player of the year, the leading points scorer in Test history, will line up in midfield alongside former New Zealand teammate Casey Laulala.

It will be a veritable Kiwi get-together in the centres as Carter and Laulala face two compatriots in veteran once-capped All Black Regan King and Hadleigh Parkes.

France international Remi Tales, who has not played in five weeks, will wear the No 10 jersey, Wales' Mike Phillips at scrumhalf with Maxime Machenaud on the bench.

Racing 92 can ensure their progress from Pool 3 by beating Scarlets, the Celtic League leaders who have lost every match in Europe this season and are already eliminated.
