Rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio joins The Headline Interview

Lawrence Dallaglio is one of the most decorated and successful English rugby players of all time.

On The Headline Interview, he spoke to Sarah Sands, the Editor of the Evening Standard, about the part rugby has played in his life,  and he looked ahead to the 2015 World Cup.

He praised the current England team, saying they are getting better and better. 

Lawrence, a former captain of the national side and World Cup winner in 2003, played for Wasps throughout his career. He told Sarah how rugby had changed his life.

His elder sister died in the Marchioness boat tragedy when he was young, and the sport helped him to cope. 

He is now working to help children in difficult circumstances through his Dallaglio Foundation. 

Since his retirement as a player, he has continued to be involved in rugby, and he has raised millions of pounds for charity.

He was awarded an MBE in 2004  and an OBE in 2008.
