Former England captain Lawrence Dallaglio has signed up with BT Sport to become its leading rugby union expert.

The England and Wasps hero, who was part of the triumphant national team of the 2003 Rugby World Cup, will be a headline figure for BT Sport, and will become a BT Ambassador.

BT Sport will broadcast exclusive coverage of up to 69 live rugby matches a season from the Aviva Premiership and Dallaglio will be a co-commentator for some live matches and studio pundit for other live clashes when BT Sport launches on August 1st.

Lawrence said: “I am genuinely thrilled to be joining BT Sport as its rugby expert. BT has huge ambitions for rugby union and I am delighted to be involved with that from the beginning.

“I hope that we can make BT Sport the place to watch rugby and I know it has some great new ideas to really put the viewer at the heart of the action.”
