Just because people don't want DC doesn't mean that they're anti-NZ. That kind of paranoia is very childish. That there were people (NZ fans) questioning whether Carter should be the ABs first choice 10 for the RWC shows that he's not been the best player all year. If I were picking an AB it'd be Nonu (and to be honest i wouldn't be sad to see him get it). Also think Ben Smith (as mentioned above) has been more consistent. Carter absolutely deserves a lifetime achievement award, probably the best rugby union player ever, but I don't think he has been the best this year.
