“I never him dropped once” – Clive Woodward ranks his five best England players

#4. Lawrence Dallaglio

  • Born August 10, 1972, Shepherd’s Bush
  • Major teams British and Irish Lions, Emerging England, England Under-21s, Wasps, England
  • Position No. 8

Went from being a schoolboy chorister to one of the most decorated and successful English players of all time.

Emerging as a raw talent in the back row during England’s victory at the 1993 Sevens World Cup at Murrayfield, Dallaglio went on to secure 85 England caps and cement his place as a hero of English rugby.

Had it all in his prime – pace, power, aggression, pride and a steely mind-set. A Lions series winner, a World Cup winner and a trophy magnet with Wasps.

WOODWARD SAID: “So talented, so physical, such a great understanding of the game and so bloody competitive. One of the best England players ever.”

DID YOU KNOW? His full name is actually Lorenzo Bruno Nero Dallaglio
