RIP Doddie Weir
Leeds Rhinos, Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield have led tributes to Doddie Weir, who sadly passed away aged 52. The former Scotland Rugby Union international had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease six years ago.
We’re sorry to hear that Doddie Weir OBE has died.
Since sharing his MND diagnosis in 2017, Doddie became an inspiration to many, raising awareness and campaigning tirelessly on behalf of those with MND.
Our thoughts are with Doddie’s wife Kathy, his 3 sons, family and friends. pic.twitter.com/6h63PzHDin
