Monday 28 October 2019 Written by: Adam

The Kingston Park clash is a 3pm kick-off, with two of Doddie Weir’s former clubs coming together to raise funds and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease.

The legendary Scotland lock has been diagnosed with the currently-incurable condition and has worked tirelessly alongside his foundation to improve the lives and future prospects of fellow sufferers.

Tickets for the game start from just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors, with the match intended to become an annual tradition.

Corporate hospitality starts from £55 +vat per person, while further funds will be raised through bucket collections, merchandise and a match-day lottery.

Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Doddie is somebody who transcends our sport, and it’s an honour for us to be involved in this fixture between two of the clubs which played such a huge part in his life.

“As well as raising valuable funds for My Name’5 Doddie it should be a great game and a proper rugby occasion for somebody we all hold very dear to our hearts.”
