A true icon of British sport, and one of the most outstanding and compelling figures in England Rugby history, Lawrence Dallaglio is regarded as one of the world’s greatest ever back row forwards.
Lawrence proudly captained his country during an England career that saw him capped 85 times. He won the inaugural Sevens World Cup in 1993 and a decade later crowned his achievements with the greatest rugby trophy of all - the Rugby World Cup: he was the only player to play in every minute of every match during England’s successful campaign in Australia. This achievement also made Lawrence one of only two northern hemisphere players to hold world cup winners medals in both the Seven Series and 15 man game. He also played on three British and Irish Lions Tours, winning a series in South Africa in 1997.
Lawrence was always a one-club man and from joining London Wasps in 1990 to his retirement in 2008 he had a outstanding career with the London club, captaining them to victory in five Premiership Titles, the League Cups and the European trophies.
In Lawrence’s Testimonial year, he set himself the challenge of raising half a million pounds for charity, and with lots of help and support the total ended up being well over a million pounds. This lead to lots more requests and it was then that Lawrence set up the Dallaglio Foundation in 2009.
In his Motivational presentations, Lawrence draws on a wealth of experience as a team leader and as one of the world's best back row players. He talks show how one can push for and achieve success even when the odds are stacked against winning through - and how to deal with pressures both on and off the field of play.
