Masterminded England’s Rugby World Cup 2003 success and was involved in Six Nations Grand Slam wins as both a player and coach. A beautifully balanced outside centre who possessed speed and guile, Clive Woodward was a key member of England’s 1980 Grand Slam-winning team and toured South Africa with the British and Irish Lions later that year. In four seasons of international rugby, he won 21 England caps and scored four tries. Heavily influenced by the teachings of Jim Greenwood while a student at Loughborough University, Woodward enjoyed an outstanding coaching career where his visionary and innovative approach and attention to detail saw England overcome several setbacks before establishing themselves as the world’s number one side. Appointed England’s first full-time professional coach in 1997, Woodward took charge of 83 matches, 59 of which were won. In 2005 he was appointed coach of the Lions for the tour of New Zealand.
