A week later, Aylwin continued to sing the praises of Carter, who he said had “gone beyond the boundaries set by [Jonny] Wilkinson.”
“His performance against the Lions in the second Test was immaculate. Some fly-halfs are great playmakers, some are great tacklers, some are great kickers, some score tries, some kick goals – but none, certainly today and probably in history, does all of them quite so effortlessly as Carter did last weekend.”
