Doddie Weir names his dream team - and it's pretty special! - Page 2 of 3 - Ruck

EPIC| Doddie Weir’s dream team is something very special

HALFBACKS:

Jonny Wilkinson (England/Lions): “He must have only been 17 or thereabouts when I met him. Thinking wise, and in terms of skill was on another level. Jonny’s dedication and diligence put many – me included – to shame.”

Joost van der Westhuizen (South Africa): “From a rival who almost single-handedly ended my career as an international number 8, to a standard-bearer in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease, and, eventually, a victim of this cruel disease. He was unstoppable on his day.”


FRONT-ROW:

George Graham (Scotland): Aggressive beyond belief, like a bulldog whose lost its bone then swallowed a Wasps trying to find it. He’d have been a nightmare to play against.”

Keith Wood (Ireland): “Phenomenal as a teammate and a super tourer. As a person, for me, he epitomized the whole Lions ethos.”

Jason Leonard (England/Lions): “He was always an absolute rock on the corner of the scrum. He did all the work in the scrum and I could just have a breather.”
