SCOTLAND international fly-half Duncan Weir is expected to complete a loan move to Worcester Warriors from Edinburgh today.

The 26-year-old stand-off arrived at Sixways last week to discuss his proposed switch with back rower Marco Mama posting a picture of him in a Warriors branded jumper on social media.

And speaking after Worcester’s 6-5 win over Exeter Chiefs last Saturday director of rugby Alan Solomons confirmed the short-term deal was close to being signed and sealed.

“Things will be finalised today and we will take it from there,” Solomons said.

Weir will add experience to Worcester’s squad having made 27 appearances for his country and starred for Glasgow Warriors before joining Edinburgh in 2016.

But he has not played since October due to an abdominal injury and will face competitions from Jamie Shillcock, 20, and Sam Olver, 23, who have been in good form in recent weeks.

Shillcock was handed the number 10 shirt and performed well in tricky conditions at Sandy Park as Warriors claimed a memorable victory over the league leaders.

The ball spent a lot of time in the air as both sides exchanged kicks and Solomons praised Warriors’ “key decision-makers” in helping to guide Worcester around the field.

“The weather conditions dictated (our kicking game) to some extent,” Solomons added.

“The wind did die a bit in the second half.

“But you have got to have an all-round game and you have to be patient with the kick tennis as well.

“It is about managing the game well, making good decisions and understanding the context of the game.

“We have certainly worked hard at that and full marks to our key decision-makers in that regard.”
