FLY-HALF Duncan Weir is poised to join Worcester Warriors on a short-term loan deal from Edinburgh.

The Scotland international has arrived at Sixways ahead of the proposed move which starts next week.

Warriors have confirmed the situation with Weir after injured back rower Marco Mama sparked speculation with a post on social media.

Mama Tweeted a picture of the 26-year-old in a Warriors branded jumper stood next to scrum-half Luke Baldwin at Sixways before deleting his message.

Baldwin, meanwhile, Tweeted: "Great to have my big bro @duncanweir #bigdunc with us."

Weir has won 27 caps for Scotland since making his debut in 2012 and memorably scored a last-gasp drop goal in their win over Italy in the 2014 Six Nations.

The stand-off featured in the 2015 Rugby World Cup but was not named in the latest Six Nations squad as he has been battling back from an abdominal injury.

Weir left Glasgow Warriors in 2016 to sign a two-year contract at Edinburgh before going on to finish his debut season as the club’s leading points scorer with 155.

Worcester’s director of rugby Alan Solomons was head coach at Edinburgh between 2013 and 2016 and recently snapped up lock Anton Bresler from the Pro14 outfit.

A club spokesman said: "Warriors can confirm that Scotland international Duncan Weir has travelled to Sixways ahead of a proposed short-term loan starting next week."
