Scotland international Duncan Weir made his mark in his first season in the Gallagher Premiership after joined Warriors from Edinburgh Rugby in the summer of 2018.

Weir proved to be an influential play-maker and accurate kicker who topped 250 points in all rugby in his first season at Sixways. Only George Ford of Leicester Tigers scored more Premiership points.

Weir's haul included a match-winning conversion of Bryce Heem's try, scored in the 19th minute of stoppage time, against Bath and a last-gasp penalty with the final kick of the match which inflicted a rare defeat on champions Saracens.

Weir passed 300 points for Warriors in his 31st match for the club, in the narrow Gallagher Premiership defeat by Exeter Chiefs in November 2019 and notched 350 in the victory over London Irish at Sixways the following month.

The fly-half has a wealth of top-level experience, having played 30 times for his country and making two appearances at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He won his first cap as a Warriors player against France in the 2020 Six Nations and won two more in the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup later that year.

Weir rejoined Glasgow Warriors, his first professional club, ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Weir featured in all but one of Scotland’s Six Nations campaigns between 2012 and 2017. He was recalled by Scotland for their training camp ahead of the 2020 Six Nations opener against Ireland in Dublin and won his 28th cap as a replacement in the win over France at Murrayfield the following month.

At club level, Weir played over 100 times for Glasgow Warriors as they reached five consecutive Pro 12 semi-finals from 2012 to 2016, finishing as runners-up in 2014 and winning the competition in 2015.

Having played European Champions Cup rugby at Glasgow, Weir moved to Edinburgh in 2016 where he was their top points-scorer in his first season at BT Murrayfield and was part of the side which reached the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals in 2017 and 2018. In his 35 games at Edinburgh, Weir amassed 232 points.

He also represented his country at age-grade and Sevens levels.
