The New Zealand Rugby Union admits it will probably lose star flyhalf Daniel Carter to an overseas club at the end of the year.

Carter is one of a host of top All Blacks who go off contract at the end of the year.

The rugby union’s professional rugby manager, Neil Sorenson, Tuesday said the likes of Carter, Nick Evans, Mose Tuiali’i and Jerry Collins could all go overseas according to a report in the NZ Herald.

Sorenson said in an ideal world they would keep all their top players but potentially all those guys could be lost to the game in NZ because that is their career move these days.

Sorenson said they are working incredibly hard to keep as many top players as possible. He said there is light at the end of the tunnel with youngsters coming through and they just have to adapt.

The Herald on Sunday reported both Carter and Evans have told the All Blacks selectors they were likely to move overseas after the Grand Slam tour in November.

Evans, who has offers to play in England, France and Ireland, is expected to make a decision in the next few weeks.

However, Carter’s situation is expected to take longer to resolve.

The Herald on Sunday said the NZRU is understood to have offered the star a sabbatical period, up to 18 months, so he could play in Europe next year while remaining contracted to the national body.
