WORCESTER Warriors fly-half Duncan Weir is in line to win his 28th Scotland cap against Grand Slam-seeking France in Sunday’s Six Nations showdown at Murrayfield (3pm).

Weir has been named among Scotland’s replacements, the first time he has been named in a match-day squad since he won his last cap against France at Murrayfield three years ago.

The Rutherglen-born 28-year-old will claim his first cap as a Warrior if he comes off the bench having arrived at Sixways in the summer of 2018.

In his two seasons with Worcester the consistent Weir has rattled up 394 points in 39 appearances.

He is in line to become the second Warriors player to be capped by Scotland this year following number eight Cornell du Preez who came off the bench in the Six Nations opener against Ireland in Dublin last month.
