The Crusaders are likely to be back to full strength for this Friday's crunch Super Rugby match against the Chiefs.
Dan Carter's confident of returning after being sidelined for the past fortnight with a hamstring injury.
Carter says he's made strong progress over the last week.
He says he's done everything asked of him, so the goal is to continue his fitness work to be back for this weekend.
Israel Dagg has also recovered from his ankle injury, while Kieran Read is available for selection following his concussion.
