The Super Rugby sees 15 teams: four Australian, five New Zealand, four South African teams plus one from Argentina and Japan, face each other. 

It's only grown from its earlier days of just six teams from the Pacific region in 1992. 

Currently, the Super W, which is heading into its second season, sees five Australian teams across a five-week competition including finals but the addition of Kiwi teams would be valuable for growing the game. 

“That would be incredible, that's the dream,” Carter told

“New Zealand are the best in the world so we need to be up to speed with how they're developing and the progression of what they're doing.

“When you play against the best it's only going to beneficial for us, so ideally that would be amazing. There's hope for the future for that to come which is very exciting.”

New Zealand has long set the standard of rugby on the international stage with the Black Ferns being five-time World Cup winners.

However, the likelihood that a trans-Tasman team would join the competition in the coming years is low.

Carter isn't the first player to advocate for the inclusion of New Zealand teams with NSW women’s captain and former Wallaroo Ash Hewson saying a provincial tour would be a good start.

“I think there’s a really large disparity between the top four teams in the world, and the rest of the world,” she said. 

“For us to mix it with the best teams in the world which we’re more than capable of, skill wise, it’s about getting that exposure to those quality games and that quality rugby.”

The Super W gets underway on February 23.
