One of 12 legends inducted at the opening of the World Rugby Hall of Fame in Rugby on 17 November, 2016
Born: 10 August, 1972 in Shepherd's Bush, London
Lawrence Dallaglio was one of the most charismatic and decorated players of his generation, a leading light for his only club Wasps and England in an era of unprecedented success.
The number eight formed a formidable back-row trinity with Richard Hill and Neil Back and was a key member of the England side that won the Grand Slam and Rugby World Cup in 2003.
Dallaglio also enjoyed the rare distinction of being a Rugby World Cup winner in both 15s and sevens, having won the sevens version at Murrayfield a decade earlier.
Captain for 22 of his 85 England caps, Dallaglio was persuaded out of retirement to appear at France 2007, where his leadership skills helped steer England to a second RWC final.
As a Lion, Dallaglio was an ever-present in the victorious test series against South Africa in 1997. Subsequent tours to Australia and New Zealand were cut short by injury.
Inducted in November 2016
