Dan Carter is hoping to be fit for Racing 92s Top 14 play-off against Toulouse on Saturday, live on Sky Sports. Brandon McManus Jersey . The New Zealand legend has been missing from the pitch since limping out of the European Champions Cup final three weeks ago with a calf problem.Carter has been resting ever since and missed Racings final three regular season league matches, including last weekends 40-25 victory over Montpellier that secured a home play-off tie. The 34-year-old returned to training just before the Montpellier clash but trained alone. He is likely to be called upon this weekend where he should line up opposite compatriot and fellow All Black international Luke McAlister.Racing come up against a Toulouse side in fine form and on a six-match winning run, during which time they beat the top two - Clermont and Toulon - as well as Racing. Only Toulon scored more tries during the regular season than Toulouse.McAlister was rested against Grenoble last weekend when a youthful Toulouse romped to a crushing 53-14 victory.These two sides have met twice before at this stage of the competition, in 2013 and 2014, both times at Toulouses ground with honours even.Its not just Carter that Racing are hoping to get back for the Toulouse visit, but also his fellow Kiwis, No 8 Chris Masoe and centre Casey Laulala, as well as France prop Edy Ban Arous.Racing are aiming to finish their season on a high following the disappointment of losing the European final to Saracens.They were criticised last week for not pushing for the attacking bonus in their win over Montpellier - a result that would have seen them take second place ahead of Toulon and earn a bye this weekend.But scrum-half Maxime Machenaud said after that match that they were fully concentrated on the job ahead.We have three more matches to be champions. But theres no euphoria because we know whats waiting for us (this) weekend against Toulouse, a massive team, he said.There are six huge teams left for one place (champions), but first of all were going after a semi-final place.RegretsToulouse have some regrets about finishing fifth in the regular season, with coach Jean-Baptiste Elissalde believing they should have finished higher.We could have out-dipped everyone on the line in this league. We deserved to be one or two places higher, said Elissalde, who added that the trip to Racing was not mission impossible. Jannie du Plessis (l), Francois Steyn (c) and Bismarck du Plessis of Montpellier celebrate after beating Harlequins in the 2016 Challenge Cup Final On Sunday, Montpellier and Castres meet for the fifth time in six years in the play-offs.Montpellier won 18-17 at Castres in 2011 but then lost to the same opponents in the next three years in a row before neither side made it into the top six last season. Weve been playing them (in the play-offs) for several years now, this time were at home, said Montpellier scrum-half Benoit Paillaugue about the Castres match.Were going to have to play the perfect match because weve got the taste of something fabulous and we want to taste it again.Paillaugue was referring to Montpelliers European Challenge Cup victory over Harlequins three weeks ago, the clubs first ever major trophy.Castres, the 2013 champions, needed a late charge to pip Bordeaux-Begles to sixth place. They won their last three games while Bordeaux lost two of theirs.The aim was the top six, the season is long and weve been through every emotion but... we can be proud and satisfied that weve achieved this objective, said Castres centre Remi Lamerat.
