Very, very sad. He certainly fought the good fight against the disease and was a pioneer in raising awareness about it and instigating fundraising efforts into research to find a cure for it. These efforts, as I have pointed out recently elsewhere on this forum, have continued with Rugby League stalwart, Kevin Seinfeld undergoing several endurance runs in order to do so.

Anyone with an interest in rugby over the last 20 odd years can probably hear Bill McLaren’s voice mentioning Weir’s name in commentary.

A lad here, Juan Carlos Unzue, was luis enriques second coach in Barça, has it. It is incredible the bravery and fight he is showing trying to raise funds and awareness. Really don’t know where these people get the strength from.

I actually played against him in 1983 or 84, I’m guessing he was 50 but we were all saying after the game he was probably the best player on the pitch
