    Smile Rugby are supporting Doddie Weir's charity

    Finally rugby has been brought round to support Doddie's charity by pundit pressure:
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/46023611

    Hopefully the six figure sum will be £999,999 rather than £100,001 for MND research via Doddie's charity!

    Fantastic news DavidT,

    I will be watching the game on Saturday. I do hope that the FA will follow rugby in support of the charity given the players affected past and present.

    So pleased to see Doddie on the One Show last night.
    You couldn't miss him in his blue and yellow check suit! Loved it.
    Shame he didn't get to stay on the sofa for the whole show.

    He's written a book so hopefully we might hear more from him as he promotes it.

    Hi Helen,

    I missed the program last night but caught up on iplayer. He explained the disease and his diagnosis very well. You could see that his hands are affected but his speech is good and I loved the fact he said he wanted to prove his neurologist wrong with the prognosis.
