As a Premiership, World Cup and Grand Slam winner, no one better embodies the charisma and the colour of English rugby's greatest era than Lawrence Dallaglio. He has some story to tell, not just of the formidable exploits on the field, but an extraordinary life off it. His only sister, Francesca, was the youngest to perish in the Marchioness" disaster on the River Thames. Her death at 19 remains the great sadness of his life. He reveals all about his personal life, the traumas he has faced, his reasons for retiring from and coming back to international rugby. Most controversially, he became captain of his country in 1997 but sensationally resigned 18 months later. In addition to his England exploits, he also led his club Wasps to the summit of European rugby, winning two Heineken Cups and three consecutive English Premiership titles. Full of drama, controversy, great sadness and heart-stopping moments, Lawrence Dallaglio's story -- the last of the great World Cup heroes -- is the one every rugby fan has been waiting to read.
