Duncan Weir

Fly-half


Duncan Weir returned to his first professional club ahead of the 2021/22 season, five years after departing Scotstoun.

Only Dan Parks and Tommy Hayes have scored more points in a Glasgow jersey than the fly-half, whose first appearance for the Warriors came off the bench against Leinster in April 2010.

A breakthrough campaign in 2011/12 saw him named to the RaboDirect PRO12 Dream Team, as his 198 points helped the Warriors reach the semi-finals.

Weir was an integral part of the Guinness PRO12 title-winning side of 2014/15, coming off the bench to kick the final points of the famous 31-13 victory in the Guinness PRO12 Final victory over Munster in Belfast.

His pinpoint accuracy from the tee has long been a staple of the fly-half’s game, with Weir kicking a flawless 10 conversions from 10 attempts in the final match of his first spell at Scotstoun – a 70-10 thumping of Zebre.

A two-year stint at Edinburgh preceded three seasons with Worcester Warriors, where Weir became a cult hero with the English Premiership club’s supporters.

His Worcester career included being one of only two players to amass over 200 English Premiership points in 2018/19, joining England fly-half George Ford in the exclusive club, as well as raising over £16,000 for Acorns Children’s Hospice through growing his unmistakable afro in 2020.

On the international stage, too, Weir has performed with distinction; an iconic match-winning drop goal against Italy in 2014 and selection for the 2015 Rugby World Cup are just two of his highlights from his Scotland career to date.

Weir became only the third player in Glasgow Warriors history to reach 900 points in May 2024, coming off the bench in Pretoria to help mastermind his side’s comeback to earn two bonus-points in a 40-34 defeat to the Bulls, scoring one of his team’s four tries and kicking a last-minute, long-range penalty to secure the losing bonus-point.

He then became just the 14th player to reach 150 appearances in Glasgow colours, leading the team out against Zebre Parma at Scotstoun in the final match of the 2023/24 regular season.
