Lawrence Dallaglio Former England Rugby Union Captain Rugby Legend and Motivational Speaker
Lawrence Dallaglio is one of the world's great rugby players winning 85 caps and captaining England and playing on three British Lions tours
Lawrence Dallaglio is regarded as one of the world's greatest back row forwards and a colossus on and off the rugby pitch over an 18 year playing career. He was an integral member of England's Rugby World Cup winning side in 2003 and a legend of the game with Wasps and the British Lions. Today he inspires rugby hopefuls as an Ambassador for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and heads The Dallaglio Foundation, an organisation that raises large sums of money for many different charitable causes.
Lawrence though tough on the field hid his personal loss. In 1989, he lost his sister Francesca to the Marchioness tragedy on the River Thames in London. In 2008, his mother, whom he refers to as 'his rock', succumbed to cancer. But the former rugby player is unfazed. When fulfilling his duties as motivational speaker, Lawrence goes through the painful process all over again as he shares how all these experiences played a part in bringing him to his present success.
