Dan Carter has told the media on his arrival in London with the Crusaders that the All Blacks have been given extra motivation to win this year's World Cup by the earthquake which devastated his hometown of Christchurch.

Ahead of the Crusaders Super Rugby match against South Africa's Sharks at Twickenham this weekend, Carter says the disaster will act as a spur as the All Blacks aim to lift the Webb Ellis trophy in October.

Carter revealed how he was about to take a shower in the changing room at AMI stadium when the earthquake struck.
