Dallaglio poised to play Popeye in 'House of Pain'

Two stints as England captain, World Cup winner's medals at 15s and sevens, a couple of Lions tours, a Grand Slam, a domestic-European club double, back-to-back Premierships, a joyous run of knock-out cup success, a grisly flirtation with the rottweiler end of British journalism, a knee injury serious enough to have incapacitated a lesser athlete for life... Lawrence Dallaglio has experienced pretty much everything rugby has to offer and enjoyed the vast majority of it.

Dallaglio's old values shape new Wasps era

Lawrence Dallaglio was in his late teens - "I was still at school, just short of my 18th birthday" - when he opened the local paper, sought out the latest Courage League One table, saw the word "Wasps" at the head of it and decided, in a blinding flash of youthful certainty, that he had found his passport to fame and fortune. It was a moment awash with serendipity; Bath, masters of all they surveyed and invariably top of the pile, would have caught his eye on virtually any other day. Conveniently for Dallaglio, only a few miles of the North Circular separated his chosen club from the family home in Shepherd's Bush. The West Country was an entire solar system away.

Woodward is wary of injury and indiscipline

Clive Woodward will demand maximum aggression from his players when they take on New Zealand and Australia next month - the kind of aggression that allowed the England pack to asphyxiate the French in the semi-final of the World Cup last November, rather than the variety employed by Danny Grewcock during his head-hunting of Lawrence Dallaglio in the Parker Pen Challenge Cup final 12 months ago.
