“Squared up” – Lawrence Dallaglio gets himself into ‘heated altercation’

Lawrence Dallaglio was pictured having a heated altercation with a Ross Kemp lookalike at the Legends Of Rugby dinner on Wednesday.  

The former England number 8 squared up with another man after being struck on the arm by the reveller, who The Sun identified as construction boss John O’Leary, 43. 

A witness revealed: “A man was seen at Lawrence’s arm as he made his way into the hotel, while Lawrence was seen going nose to nose with the guy, as shouting was heard.’

It was a military-style “boot camp” organized as a “team building” exercise for the South African national rugby union team, the Springboks (or Boks), during their preparation for the 2003 Rugby World Cup (RWC). Details of the camp emerged in the South African media, resulting in protest from the upper administrative levels of South African rugby.

  • The team was ordered to climb into a foxhole naked and sing the national anthem while ice-cold water were being poured over their heads. During their time in the hole, recordings of God Save the Queen (used as England‘s national anthem) and the New Zealand All Blacks haka were played at full volume.
  • It was confirmed that firearms were present at the camp, although reports varied as to whether they were ever pointed at anyone.
  • The players were forced to crawl naked across gravel.
  • They also were ordered to spend a night in the bush, during which they were to kill and cook chickens, but not eat them.
