For­mer Cam­bus­lang RFC fly-half Dun­can Weir has been told he has no fu­ture at Ed­in­burgh Rugby.

Weir, who has earned 27 Scot­land caps, was ex­pected to com­plete a loan move to Worces­ter but has been re­called by Ed­in­burgh for Fri­day’s Pro14 meet­ing with Ul­ster.

How­ever, Richard Cock­er­ill, the Ed­in­burgh head coach, has told the for­mer Cathkin High pupil that he and three other play­ers do not fea­ture in his plans.

Weir is ex­pected to sign a long-term con­tract with Worces­ter, where for­mer Ed­in­burgh coach Alan Solomons is now di­rec­tor of rugby.

The 26-year-old has had an in­jury-rav­aged two years at Ed­in­burgh since join­ing from Glas­gow War­riors.

Cock­er­ill said:“Dun­can needs an op­por­tu­nity and there’s an op­por­tu­nity at Worces­ter.

“Now be­cause he is a good man, we’ll let him take that op­por­tu­nity, be­cause he needs to go and find a new club. Where pos­si­ble, we’ll try and help any player to move on in a pos­i­tive way.”
