Career

He won the inaugural World Cup Sevens with England in 1993. He was then a surprise choice for the 1994 England tour to South Africa. Yet the following winter he wasn't guaranteed a place in Wasps' backrow. One season on and he became club captain when Rob Andrew left for Newcastle in October 1995, taking four experienced players with him. He held the club together and 12 months later led Wasps to the first professional English league title.

He made his debut for England in November 1995 and has gone on to win more than 65 caps for England. He toured South Africa with the 1997 Lions tour.


He was given the England captaincy in the autumn of 1997 by new coach Clive Woodward, taking over from Phil de Glanville. The other candidate for the job, Martin Johnson, had led the Lions tour, but Dallaglio was preferred.

In 1999 he was caught by a honey trap set by the News of the World, who managed to get a confession from him that he was a regular cocaine user, he also boasted of making large sums of money drug dealing in his youth. Although he later denied this, and put it down to alcohol-induced bravado, he lost the England captaincy to Johnson. He continued playing, especially at number eight in the Neil Back - Dallaglio - Richard Hill back row triumvirate. The News of the World is a British tabloid newspaper published every Sunday. ...

Dallaglio had a fantastic season in 1999/2000 when he was handed back the club captaincy. Although the side's league form was disappointing, Dallaglio led Wasps on an impressive Heineken Cup run and to a second successive Tetley Bitter Cup victory. The Heineken Cup sponsored by Heineken (known as the H Cup in France due to alcohol advertising laws) is an annual rugby union competition involving leading club, regional and provincial teams from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. ...


Another impeccable season in 2000/2001 closed with selection for his second Lions Tour, but an injury in the last game of the season against Bath meant he was doubtful for the trip to Australia. The Lions passed him fit but he the knee gave way in a mid-week match, cutting short his tour and forcing the Wasps captain to undergo reconstructive surgery.


Dallaglio was part of the 2003 England grand slam and world cup winning side. He played in every England game during the World Cup and was not replaced once. He regained the captaincy in 2004 after Johnson's retirement from international rugby. Without Johnson the team played poorly, and Dallaglio announced his retirement from international rugby on August 31, 2004, although he continued to play for Wasps. is the 243rd day of the year (244th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Despite his international retirement, Dallaglio was called up for his third British and Irish Lions tour in 2005. Back and Hill also received Lions call-ups. Dallaglio was not able to add any more Lions caps, as he fractured his ankle during the Lions' first tour match on June 4. He announced his availability again for England selection at the end of 2005 and was included in the squad for the 2006 Six Nations Championship. He was named on the bench for England's opening match of the tournament versus Wales on Saturday, February 4, at Twickenham. He was a blood replacement for club mate Joe Worsley after 13 minutes and on 64 minutes was a replacement for Martin Corry, touching down with a clinically executed charge from the back of the scrum on 70 minutes. He came on three more times from the bench during the tournament, but not during the 28-24 loss to Ireland, which was the last game of the 2006 championship.

Dallaglio returned from an ankle injury early in the 2006/07 domestic season to reclaim the club captaincy at Wasps. This was a largely indifferent Guinness Premiership season for the Wycombe based team, which ended with them failing to qualify for the playoffs for the very first time since the introduction of the knockout system. However, Dallaglio and his teammates saved their best performances for the Heineken Cup; he led the club to its second european championship win on 20th May 2007. This final, played at Twickenham, set the world record for the highest attendance figure for a club rugby match (at around 82,000), and saw the Wasps foil the attempts of the unanimous favourites, Leicester Tigers, to achieve an unprecedented Treble (the Tigers had already won the EDF Cup and the Guinness Premiership trophies). The victory was all the more remarkable given that Wasps had suffered a 40-26 defeat to Leicester at Welford Road less than a month prior to the game, and remains one of the great upsets of English Rugby Union history.

The Welford Road stadium is home to the Leicester Tigers, the stadium is located between the Alyestone Road and the Welford Road, on the edge of Leicesters city centre. ...

Everyone was telling us this was the best Leicester team ever, so that must make us the best Wasps team ever. To win this competition once is fantastic, so I'm delighted to win it again, and it puts us in a very elite group of clubs who have done that. It shows what we are about. Leicester Tigers have had a fantastic season and the strength and depth to compete on three fronts. They have done that fantastically well, but we targeted this competition at the start of the season and we've won. The way you win these games is with belief. We had the media saying we were second best in the scrum, line out, defence and the back three, but we had belief in our team and I think that's half the battle against Leicester. I think we showed maturity in the way we played in the second half to make sure Leicester didn't score a single point let alone a try, and that says everything about our defence. If you defend well at the highest level you win trophies.

Lawrence Dallaglio, speaking after Wasps' 2007 Heineken Cup final win.

On 15th June 2007, England coach Brian Ashton named Dallaglio as one of 47 players called up to attend the World Cup 2007 training camp. He has been named to play Number 8 in England's opening World Cup group match against USA.

In October 2005, it emerged that prior to his rugby career, Dallaglio had a secret claim to fame. In 1985, as a 13-year-old chorister in King's House School choir, Dallaglio and 20 other choristers had sung backing vocals on the song "We Don't Need Another Hero" by Tina Turner. This fact emerged when the Musicians' Union realised that the choristers had not been paid royalties on the record and attempted to track them down, 20 years on. In the same choir, Dallaglio had sung at the wedding of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Dallaglio is also a fan of Chelsea FC.
