Ellis Rugby Doddie Weir Tartan Rugby Kit
Doddie Weir, a name synonymous with rugby greatness, has left an indelible mark not only on the sport but also on the fight against Motor Neuron Disease (MND). Sadly the big man passed away in November 2022, but his legacy has now extended beyond the field with the launch of an iconic range of clothing from Ellis Rugby that beautifully captures his rugby journey and his dedication to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
At the heart of this collection lies an iconic rugby jersey that pays homage to Doddie Weir's illustrious rugby career during the years 1990-2000. This period marked his unforgettable years playing for Scotland, and the retro Scotland crest on the jersey is a nod to those glory days. This jersey is not just a piece of clothing; it's a living testament to the era that shaped Doddie into the legend he is today.
The attention to detail in this clothing line is truly extraordinary. Each piece is adorned with official tartan trim, carefully curated to accentuate the significance of Doddie's rugby journey. The tartan, meticulously incorporated, pays homage to both Scotland and Melrose – Doddie's first amateur senior team. The blue and white hues represent Scotland's pride, while the black and yellow hues represent the colours of Melrose, a team that holds a special place in Doddie's heart.
Doddie's signature, an emblem of his commitment and passion for the sport, is elegantly embroidered on the right-hand side of the chest. This signature not only adds a personalised touch to the clothing but also symbolises the dedication that Doddie poured into every match he played.
Beyond the rugby-inspired elements, the clothing line carries a profound purpose. The My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo is tastefully embroidered on the rear of the garments, reminding us of the foundation's mission to combat MND.
Doddie Weir's range of clothing is more than a collection; it's a masterpiece that encapsulates his rugby legacy and his commitment to making a difference. With its retro charm, tartan elegance, and heartfelt details, this clothing line is a tribute to a sporting icon, a brave fighter, and an all-round rugby legend. By wearing these garments, you're not just showcasing your love for rugby, but also standing in solidarity with Doddie's mission to tackle MND head-on.
