BeschreibungThe colossus of English rugby tells his story at last
PortraitLawrence Dallaglio has been a Wasps player all his club career, signing in 1990 and becoming captain in 1995 for 12 years until his retirement in 2008. He has won a hat-trick of Premiership titles and was also a member of the triumphant England Sevens team which won the World Cup at Murrayfield in 1993. He has captained his country and is regarded as one of the worlds greatest ever back-row forwards - he was the only player to play in every minute of every match during the victorious 2003 World Cup campaign. He has won 85 caps for England and 3 Lions caps.
Pressestimmen'Uncontrollably frank...a terrific book' -- Daily Telegraph 'Dallaglio, as befits his hardman persona, takes no prisoners' -- Guardian 'One of the best autobiographies of the year... beautifully written' -- Daily Telegraph 'It's top' -- Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear 'Never less than compelling' -- Mariella Frostrup, The Book Show 'By no means just for rugby heads' -- Evening Standard 'An engaging tale' -- Daily Express 'lucid, detailed and frank' -- The Times 'Conveyed with the right balance of truth and delicacy: there is nothing prurient, yet the emotional passages are extremely moving, which is not something you can say about many rugby books' -- Daily Telegraph 'The story of a true English sporting hero, albeit a flawed one for whom tragedy as well as disgrace has been a companion. Pretty much everything is confronted head on, exactly as Dallaglio played, indeed plays' -- Daily Mail
