Please comment with a ‘+1’ if you think the club should rename one of the stands to the ‘Doddie Weir Stand’ in honour of the great man.

+1.

I originally hoped the new North Stand would be named to honour the Tartan Giraffe, but on reflection, I would be all for naming the South Stand, surely one of the greatest, proudest & loudest stands in British rugby, after the lanky Jock.

I honestly do not think there could be a better name for the South Stand, and to receive my season ticket for 2020/21 for the Doddie Weir Stand would make me feel very proud, & somehow it would just be right.

Brill idea, Monko. I'd love to stand in the Doddie.

Just managed to find some WiFi out here in the desert and watch Doddies acceptance speech on SPOTY.
The dignity of the great man and his fighting spirit is absolutely inspirational. These are qualities that we hope inspire and epitomise the spirit within our team, club and supporters.
I understand that the designation of stands can be used for financial gain through naming them after companies, but whilst I would not wish the club to be deprived of a much needed revenue stream , this seems a truly fantastic opportunity to honour Doddie and given the fund raising conducted by the club with ‘The Big One’ matches To date and the selling of merchandising it seems Only right to name a stand after him.
And given this recent award , the sooner this is announced the better.
Merry Christmas one and all!!
