After signing for Racing 92 at the end of 2017, Lambie signed a new four-year deal with the club in September 2018, but struggled with injuries, most notably an injury to his eye socket and knee.

Carter, who played 112 tests for the All Blacks, finished his time with Racing 92 when they were knocked out of the Top 14 semifinals in May previous year.

However, in a statement released on Saturday evening, Racing confirmed that on medical grounds, Carter will not be allowed to play in France.

But the French club announced this morning Carter's return has been cancelled.

"Racing 92 handed over certain elements of his medical dossier to the experts designated by the French National League". 'Their opinion was unanimous: Dan Carter would not be able to play rugby in France'.

Ford will be shopped on the trade market after receiving the tag, according to ESPN. Ford's franchise tag will be worth approximately $15.8 million.

"We wish Dan all the best for the future, a future as bright as his enormous career".

During his previous three-year stint in the French capital, Carter won the league title but was a runner-up in two European Champions Cup finals.

The Racing 92 players gave Lambie a fitting tribute in their changeroom following their 50-14 thrashing of La Rochelle over the weekend.

Carter has recently finished up his first season in Japan with Kobe Steelers, and helped guide them to the title - while being named the league's MVP.
