Doddie Weir

Doddie Weir was mainstay of Scotland’s forward pack in the 1990s, winning 61 caps and playing for Stewarts Melville, Newcastle Falcons, Melrose and the Borders. 
He featured for the Barbarians six times, making his debut against Newport in 1992 and captaining the club on his final appearance, a try-scoring one, against the Combined Services in 2002.
The big-hearted lock has always been a popular character and accomplished speaker and now raises funds for research into Motor Neurone Disease.
He was diagnosed with MND in 2017 and the My Name’5 Doddie foundation he set up has now raised more than £1million.
