The 50-year-old former England rugby great Lawrence Dallaglio ‘is facing bankruptcy

Lawrence Dallaglio, a rugby great for England, stated that ‘all is OK’ when it was revealed that he is defending a bankruptcy lawsuit.

Tuesday, HMRC reportedly filed an action against the 50-year-old World Cup-winning hero in the High Court in central London.

On Thursday, though, he stated outside his $3.5 million property in Richmond, South West London, that there was “nothing to worry about.”

He informed the Sun that he was ‘aware’ of the allegation and added, ‘It’s all OK.’ There is no cause for concern. I have somebody handling it.’

HMRC does not comment on particular situations. MailOnline has reached out to a Dallaglio spokesperson for comment.

Jonny Wilkinson’s drop goal in extra time secured England’s win against Australia in the 2003 Rugby World Cup final, in which Dallaglio was a member of the England side.

When he retired in 2008, Dillaglio told the Financial Times how he had made his “first million,” adding, “I believe it is one’s duty to guarantee that the taxman does not get everything.”

If you wanted to make money, you wouldn’t play rugby, he said.

For me, it has never been about money. I had a benefit year in 2003 that collected almost £1 million for charity.Dallaglio (pictured in 2003) is widely known as one of the greatest players to ever feature in Rugby Union and for a time captained England

Pro rugby players make around £60,000 per year. If you win the World Cup, you may receive the same amount of money again.’

Dallaglio is largely regarded as one of the best Rugby Union players of all time, and he led England for a period.

During a lengthy playing career that began in 1990, he accumulated over 300 league appearances for Wasps and 88 Test caps.

His career, however, has not been without of controversy.

In 1999, Dallaglio resigned as captain of England following claims that he had taken cocaine and ecstasy while celebrating the British Lions’ 2-1 series victory in South Africa in 1997.

The rugby player disputed the allegations and stated, “The conditions under which the alleged admissions were collected constituted an intricate ruse.”

Years later, in March 2020, a court was informed that Dallaglio made “up to £10,000 in payments to brothels.”

An open court heard that he allegedly used his own bank cards during visits to a private Georgian townhouse in Holborn, London, which also sold cocaine.

The Sun said that Dallaglio’s alleged trips were disclosed during the prosecution of a group accused of supplying prostitutes and class A narcotics within the facility.

During the six-week trial at North London’s Wood Green crown court, the father of two was not summoned to testify.

The former athlete was never arrested, and the nature of his expenditures was never determined.

The name of the rugby player was revealed when officers conducted a raid on the Holborn brothel in July 2019 and combed through the 180,000 bank card receipts found within. The brothel in downtown London has now been closed.

Dallaglio, who currently works as a frequent pundit for ITV, finished his rugby career with five league title medals, three Powergen cups, two Heineken cups, and a World Cup winner’s medal.

The previous year, Dallaglio thanked rugby with rescuing him after his sister’s untimely death in 1989.

His sister Francesca was among the about 130 individuals who attended a party on the Marchioness on the River Thames that lasted till the wee hours. The collision between the two vessels resulted in the deaths of fifty-one individuals.
