Gatland: Lawrence Dallaglio (England)
GATLAND SAID: “The best captain that I’ve ever been involved with was Lawrence Dallaglio. He had that unbelievable ability to motivate players in a way that I’ve never seen anyone else able to do. Particularly in the changing rooms,” Gatland explained. He’d talk the talk and then walk the walk. I’ve so much admiration for his leadership and honesty in that role.”Embed from Getty Images
