Wales preparing for Carter's absence


Wales coach Warren Gatland says he is preparing his team to face a New Zealand side without their star fly-half Dan Carter, who he feels will be kept out by injury.

Carter is carrying a calf injury, but he has been named in the All Blacks team for Saturday's showdown in Cardiff. The player himself says he is "confident" of fitness.

Gatland was speaking at the opening of the Welsh Rugby Union's new store, bar and cafe at No 8 Westgate Street - now to be known as The Cardiff Arms.
