DUNCAN Weir has been added to Scotland's squad for the autumn internationals – but his call-up has left Worcester Warriors with limited options at fly-half.

The 27-cap stand-off who has not represented his country since March 2017 continued his excellent form with Warriors at the weekend when he scored the opening try in their 31-12 victory at Leicester Tigers in the Premiership Cup.

Glasgow-born Weir is now in the running to play in Scotland’s clash with Fiji at Murrayfield on Saturday (2.30pm).

Scotland also host South Africa on Saturday, November 17 (5.20pm) and Argentina on Saturday, November 24 (2.30pm).

The Tests against Springboks and Pumas clash with Warriors’ next two Premiership fixtures as they visit Bath before facing Harlequins at Sixways.

With Lance sidelined for four months with a back issue, Jamie Shillcock will be director of rugby Alan Solomons’ main choice at number 10.

Centre Ryan Mills and utility back Scott van Breda can also play in that position while academy ace Luke Scully is a regular for Worcester Cavaliers.

But speaking in the wake of Lance's injury last week Solomons said he would hold talks with Warriors' owners over the possibility of bringing in another fly-half.

Scotland have also called-up Sale Sharks back rower Josh Strauss and Glasgow Warriors quartet Adam Ashe, Scott Cummings, Nick Grigg, and Stuart Hogg.

The additions follow injuries sustained by Scarlets back-row Blade Thomson (head) and Harlequins centre James Lang (rib), while Leicester Tigers flanker David Denton and Edinburgh’s Matt Scott continue their ongoing recovery from head injuries with their respective clubs.

The national team also confirmed Edinburgh trio Ross Ford, Henry Pyrgos and Dougie Fife have been released back to the club.
