Asian handicap World Cup 2011 (in New Zealand) New Zealand Vs Canada 10/2 8AM(GMT+8)

New Zealand fly-half Dan Carter pulled up in training during his final round of kicking and as a result will play no part in Sunday's final Pool A game with Canada.
It will be a huge concern for the hosts, who are expected to make an announcement on Sunday about the extent of the groin injury, amid fears he could miss the rest of the tournament.

The 29-year old was set to lead the side as captain against Canada, in the absence of the injured Richie McCaw, who is out with a foot problem.
However, Hooker Andrew Hore will now pick up the captaincy for the very first time.
Colin Slade has been given the number 10 shirt by coach Graham Henry, while Victor Vito will replace McCaw in the side.
Henry will be waiting patiently over the next 24 hours, as he awaits further news about the highest points scorer in Test match history.
"Carter will be further assessed this evening (Saturday) and an update will be given tomorrow," an All Blacks statement said.
"No further updates will be given at this time." -
