 Doddie Weir - one last try
Topic Originator: Raymie the Legend  
Date:   Mon 23 Dec 09:16

Just watched an extremely sad, emotional and uplifting documentary following a year in the life of Doddie Weir, Scottish rugby legend, who has Motor Neurone Disease.

An absolute must watch. Available on the iPlayer.

What a great man!




It's bloody tough being a legend

So sad seeing a big strong guy deteriorate to a horrible disease.

Seeing Fernando Ricksen was shocking enough but i think with Doddie being such a physically intimidating presence given his natural height and build the level and aggressiveness of the deterioration was even more shocking and really hit home.

Horrible disease but an inspirational story and person
