Scotland international Duncan Weir will make a return to Glasgow Warriors ahead of the 2021/22 season after signing a long-term deal with the Pro14 club.

Weir's professional rugby debut came with Glasgow in 2010 and made over 100 appearances for them and has amassed 765 points - making him the third highest scorer for the club after Dan Parks and Tommy Hayes. He was also part of the Glasgow side that went on to win the Pro12 title in the 2014/15 season.

He made a switch to Edinburgh in 2016 before joining Worcester Warriors ahead of the 2018/19 season. The 29-year-old has played 38 Premiership games for the club scoring 340 points.

Weir made his Scotland debut in 2012 and has gone on to play 30 Tests for the Dark Blues including two appearances in the 2015 World Cup.

“It’s massively exciting for me to be coming back to Glasgow Warriors,” Weir told glasgowwarriors.org.

“Glasgow is my home and Glasgow Warriors is my boyhood club where it all began. It’s always a massive honour pulling on the jersey and I’m really looking forward to doing it again.

“I’ve had some great chats with Danny. I’m excited to play a part in Glasgow’s future and helping drive the club on to winning more silverware and competing at the top end of the table which we are both hugely passionate about.

“For my family it’s going to be amazing just to being so close to home and the thought of my children growing up in Glasgow was hugely appealing to us when we were weighing up our options.

“I can’t wait to get back out in front of the crowds at Scotstoun. You can’t beat the atmosphere of a game under the Friday night lights.”
