Cape Town - The All Blacks are in France where they are preparing for Saturday's Test in Paris, and they had a special visitor at their training session this week when Dan Carter popped in. 

The former All Black flyhalf, considered one of the greatest the game has ever seen, is based in France where he plays his rugby for Racing 92. 

Now 35-years-old, Carter took to social media to post a video of the All Blacks at work while current flyhalf, Beauden Barrett, posed a picture of himself standing alongside Carter. 

Barrett, still just 26, has already notched up 59 Tests since making his debut in 2012 and he is largely considered the best flyhalf in the world currently. 

Carter, meanwhile, finished on 112 Tests. 

Saturday's match kicks off at 21:45 (SA time).
