Duncan Weir

Duncan Weir started his rugby with Cambuslang at Primary 2 level and went through the ranks to play senior rugby for the club. 

Weir raced to the head of the GUINNESS PRO12 scoring charts early in season 2011/12, and was rewarded with a long-term Warriors contract extension. He was named in the PRO12 Dream Team and is widely regarded as one of the most talented young stand-offs in the British game.  He started the last three games of Scotland's RBS 6 Nastions campaign in 2013.

A former pupil of Cathkin High School, Weir attracted the attention of a number of senior Scottish football clubs, including Celtic (for whom he signed for a short period), Aberdeen, Dunfermline and Kilmarnock, while he was playing football for Glasgow Athletic boys club.

However, Duncan decided to concentrate on rugby and has not looked back since. 

The 2009/10 season saw him play his club rugby for Glasgow Hawks, train as a member of Scottish Rugby’s National Academy and studied for an HND in coaching at Cumbernauld College before he was promoted from the Scotland U19 squad up to the U20s.

Weir won his first cap for Scotland against France in the 2012 RBS 6 Nations Championship. He came off the bench to replace Greig Laidlaw and converted Lee Jones' second-half try. 

His 80th minute drop-goal secured Scotland a 21-20 win over Italy to mark their first success in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship. And three months later the diminutive Weir proved match-winner again as his 79th minute penalty was key in a 21-19 margin against Argentina which booked Scotland their third summer tour victory.

He was called up to the 2015 Scotland World Cup squad before making his 100th appearance for Glasgow against Racing 92 at Rugby Park in Januray 2015.

Weir will join Edinburgh Rugby when his contract expires at the end of 2015/16 season.
