WATCH: The act of malicious thuggery that dashed Doddie Weir’s Lions dream

Many people will have developed a soft spot for Doddie Weir from his reaction to being told his Lions tour was over in 1997, as shown on the Living With the Lions DVD.

The incident in the game against Mpumalanga that caused the injury was horrendous.


“The stamp on Doddie was a cold-blooded act totally out of context with the game,” said an incandescent Ian McGeechan, the Lions coach.

“Under the terms of the tour agreement we cannot cite the offender because the incident was dealt with by the referee, but the fact remains that Doddie has a medial ligament injury that may prove very serious.”
