Dan Carter has called for the public to end the booing that Quade Cooper gets and says enough is enough and that it is "not a good look".

The Crusaders beat the Reds 38-9 in Christchurch on Saturday but every time Cooper touched the ball he was jeered and booed by the home crowd.

When Cooper took place kicks for penalties at goal the jeering was deafening and Carter says he is no fan of the behaviour.

In an interview with Radio Sport Carter said that "it's time everyone moved on" and added that he didn't particularly like anyone being booed at any stadium.

Crusaders fullback Israel Dagg appealed for New Zealand rugby fans to stop booing Cooper after the Crusaders victory on Saturday.

"Great win by the boys but please peeps give @QuadeCooper a break!! Disappointed by the boos #moveon," Dagg tweeted.

Christchurch is not alone in Super Rugby venues where fans boo oppostion teams and in 2013 there has been an increase of the unsporting behaviour at stadiums.
