Lawrence Dallaglio is a retired English rugby union player and former captain of the England national team, with whom he clinched the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia.
Standing at 6’4”, the legendary Number Eight was the only component of Sir Clive Woodward’s side to play every single minute of the tournament as they claimed the Webb Ellis Cup against the hosts at the Telstra Stadium.
With the World Cup win, he became one of the two players – the other being England scrum-half Matt Dawson – to have won the World Cup in both the 15- and 7-a-side competitions, and he went on to nearly add to this amazing feat by helping England to the 2007 final in France.
Lawrence is also revered in club rugby, being a rare one-club player courtesy of his 18-year spell at Wasps. He joined the club, then based in London, in 1990 as an 18-year-old, eventually growing to become club captain and helping the side claim five Aviva Premiership titles, two Heineken Cups and three Anglo-Welsh Cups.
As an after dinner speaker, Lawrence speaks of the importance of inspiring young people to become more active and take part in competitive sport. He also shares anecdotes from his time as one of the greatest rugby players that both Wasps and England have ever counted among their ranks.
