  • Duncan Weir (born 10 May 1991) is a Scottish rugby union footballer. He plays professional rugby for Glasgow Warriors at fly-half.The former Cathkin High School pupil joined up at Old Anniesland from Cambuslang where he was involved since primary school (Hallside Primary).Glasgow coach Sean Lineen said of the stand-off: "We've been watching Duncan for a while now. He is a talented youngster with an outstanding kicking game. I really like his attitude and I'm looking forward to working with him."Weir represented Scotland in the IRB Sevens series in 2010 and has played for Scotland U17 and U19s.He is studying an HND in Sports Coaching with Development of Sport at Cumbernauld College.For much of season 2008/2009, Weir was sidelined with a serious injury to his anterior cruciate ligament. But the young stand-off battled back to fitness.He explained: “I had to be patient, but I suppose I am a fairly down-to-earth person and that setback just made me more determined to enjoy rugby when I returned to the fold.“I have also been fortunate that so many folk have done their best to help me, such as Alan Lindsay and Scott Forrest (Scotland’s international sevens captain), who worked with me at Cambuslang RFC, and Peter Wright, who has given me my opportunity at Hawks and has encouraged me to play my natural game.“When you grow up in Glasgow, you get used to kicking a ball around, and trying different tricks with it and, for me, the shape of the ball doesn’t really matter. If you get comfortable with it and keep practising, it gives you the confidence to try things and Peter always tells us to trust our instincts. And it’s going fine so far.”Weir made his full Scotland debut against France in the 2012 Six Nations championship.Weir was reserve Fly-Half for Scotland's 2013 Six Nations campaign but with Scotland failing to score tries, Weir's Glasgow teammate Ruaridh Jackson was dropped and Weir stepped in. He started Scotland's final two games in the Championship which Scotland finished in 3rd place.Aged 22 and having recovered from a broken leg, Weir was starting Fly-half for Scotland's 2014 Six Nations having impressed in Glasgow's successful season. He scored a last minute Drop-goal to beat Italy in Rome for the first time since 2006.In March 2014, Weir signed a new 2 year contract with Glasgow. Glasgow coach and former Scotland Fly-half Gregor Townsend said“We are delighted that Duncan has committed to the club for the next two seasons and this is really good news for us and for Scottish rugby. He has made a great return from injury this season and has been a consistent performer for the club and for Scotland during this year’s RBS 6 Nations. His drop-goal to win the Italy game was top drawer and he has shown that he can operate at the highest level of the game. Duncan works hard at getting better every day at training and he’s made great strides in both the technical and tactical side of playing at stand-off. His ability to lead the attack is beginning to become a real strength of his game. He has a big role to play at the club over the next couple of years.”
