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.

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.”
