Is this the story behind Honor Carter's cryptic tweet last week?

Dan Carter's wife is apparently considering taking up hockey again now that she has settled into life in Europe.

The former Black Sticks international, who played 68 times for New Zealand from 2004 to 2011, is based in Paris where hubby Dan has a multi-million dollar deal with the Racing Metro club.

Racing also has men's and women's hockey teams and 33-year-old Honor seems interested.


"Should I pick up my hockey stick again," she tweeted overnight alongside a photo of the club's facilities where Dan can be seen walking one of their two sons.

The latest tweet appears to answer her cryptic message last week when she posted: "I refuse to be a shadow to my husbands life #watchthisspace."
