Duncan Weir has committed his future to Worcester Warriors by signing a new two-year contract to remain at Sixways.
The Scotland international has been a revelation on the pitch since joining Warriors in the summer and has been key to the club’s strong early-season form.
Weir has made 11 appearances in all competitions for Warriors and has racked up 119 points.
He has been consistent with the boot and the fly-half has a kicking accuracy of almost 91 per cent in the Gallagher Premiership courtesy of 30 successful kicks from 33 attempts.
His last 19 kicks in the Premiership have all sailed through the posts and he is the second top scorer in the league with 87 points.
Weir said: “I have really enjoyed pulling on the Warriors shirt and being out on the pitch so I am delighted to have signed a new contract.
“All the lads welcomed me with open arms when I arrived in the summer and I’ve felt at home from day one.
“These lads are all pulling in the same direction and working hard for each other, and that shows with the way we’ve been playing.
“My aim now is to help us get some more wins and keep pushing up the Premiership table.”
Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons said: “Duncan has shown that he is one of the best fly-halves in the Premiership. He has been a key player for us this season and has given the team real direction.
“His kicking has been superb and the experience he brings to the side has been invaluable so we are delighted to have him on board.”
Weir joined Warriors in the summer after two years with Edinburgh Rugby and previously won the Pro12 with Glasgow Warriors.
He has won 27 caps for Scotland and was part of his country’s set-up during this season’s autumn internationals.
