Doddie Weir is one of rugbys most recognisable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career and represented the British & Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997. A talented, committed, and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017, the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers from the outset and seek ways to further research this as yet incurable disease.
Doddie’s story has touched the rugby world. And to have done it with a smile never far from his lips, and humour punctuating every call to action, Doddie does inspire.
