Newcastle Falcons wore a special one-off charity jersey for their The Big One clash against Sale at St James’ Park, which is once again raising funds and awareness for the My Name’5 Doddie foundation.

As with last year, the base of the shirt references the famous black and white vertical stripes of St James’ Park’s usual tenants, Newcastle United FC, but this time around the shirt also features a nod to the charity they’re supporting.

The shoulders and sleeves both feature the ‘Doddie’5 Tartan’ – a unique pattern designed in honour of Doddie Weir by Scotland Shop, the outlet that created many of Doddie’s signature tartan suits.

A portion of the proceeds from each shirt’s sale will go to the My Name’5 Doddie foundation to fund research into Motor Neurone Disease, though we understand that the shirts have already sold out prior to the game.
