Scotland fly-half Duncan Weir is set to join Aviva Premiership side Worcester Warriors prior to the start of next season.

The 26-year-old began his career at Glasgow in 2010, but moved to Scottish rivals Edinburgh in 2016.

In that time the Rutherglen-native has also made 27 appearances for his country, scoring 57 points in that time.

However, Weir has deemed the time is now to make first foray in club rugby outside the PRO14.

Worcester have been pursuing a fairly rampant recrutiment policy in the wake of this disappointing season, which will see them retain Premiership rugby status, if in a frustatingly low position.

As such, Weir will be the Warriors’ tenth signing of the season.

Weir iterated his excitement to join ranks with his new club soon:

I am extremely excited to be moving to Sixways this summer to be part of a very talented squad.

Warriors have shown this season that they can beat any team on their day, and I am looking forward to working hard to help the club have a successful 2018/19 campaign.

Club director of rugby Alan Solomons echoed these thoughts:

He is a top-class player who possesses experience at the highest level in the game.

He will provide us with another outstanding option at fly-half as we continue to build an exciting squad ahead of the 2018/19 season, and we look forward to welcoming him to the club.
