Last XV to start under Sir Clive Woodward for England: Where are they now?

Lock: Simon Shaw

The lock put in a monumental shift for the club between 1997 and 2011 and played a key part in all the club success in this period. A record 339 games for the club, 25 tries and that iconic drop-goal he slotted against Bath in 2000. He went onto play for Toulon between 2011 and 2013 before hanging up his boots. He is now director of Rugby Hospitality company Set Piece Events.


Lock: Stephen Borthwick

During his 16 years in the top flight he captained Bath to a European Challenge Cup triumph in 2008 and also led Saracens to the Premiership title in 2011. He retired from Saracens in 2014 and took up the role of Japan Forwards Coach for the Rugby World Cup. He was appointed Bristol Forwards Coach in November 2015 before joining England the following month.

Flanker: Joe Worsley

The flanker, once such a feature of the English landscape as a broad-chested back-rower for Wasps and England, now works as a coach with the Bordeaux-Begles. 


Flanker: Richard Hill

Flanker picked up 71 caps for England before retiring in 2008 after a spate of serious knee injuries. A one-club man with Saracens, Hill worked with the club and RFU after retiring. In 2014 he was appointed RFU Player Pathway Liaison Manager, while 2016 saw him appointed England Rugby senior team manager. Now sits on the England RFU Council.


Number 8: Lawrence Dallaglio 

The No 8 played on with England until the 2007 World Cup, with his final cap coming off the bench in final defeat to the Boks in Paris. Dallaglio retired from rugby the following season in 2008 as a Premiership winner with Wasps. Despite stating an intention to coach, Dallaglio has worked in the media since.
