- 10+ in stock
One of rugby union’s most colourful characters reveals all in a rambunctious memoir that takes in his tireless campaigning for MND alongside the highs of his extraordinary playing career. Written with heart, soul and passion, My Name’5 Doddie is a glowing testament to an incredible man.
The extraordinary, life-affirming autobiography of Doddie Weir Rugby legend and MND campaigner
Doddie Weir has always lived life to the full. On the pitch, Doddie's irresistible talent took him to the heart of every team he graced - from Stewart's Melville to Melrose, Newcastle Falcons to Borders, from Scotland to the British & Irish Lions - winning 61 caps over a decade of appearances for his national side. He won fans all over the world with his sportsmanship, humour and boundless energy - especially when on the charge 'like a mad giraffe'.
Then, in June 2017, Doddie made the announcement that he had been diagnosed with MND. With no cure and almost no treatment of any sort available, Doddie set out to do what he could to change that, tackling the issue head on with his trademark positivity and good humour. Since then, his My Name'5 DODDIE Foundation has raised and pledged millions towards research into this dreadful condition and his tireless campaigning has transcended the world of sport.
My Name'5 DODDIE is a humbling, courageous and very funny celebration of a remarkable life being lived to the max. And with a brand new update, this is an absolute must-read - rugby fan or not.
