WORCESTER Warriors fly-half Duncan Weir has been added to the Scotland squad ahead of the national team’s Guinness Six Nations opener against Ireland in Dublin.

Weir earned the most recent of his 27 caps in the 2017 tournament and is the only addition to a 34-man squad who will leave for a training camp in Spain on Sunday.

The 28-year-old comes in after the withdrawal of Racing 92 stand-off Finn Russell.

He joins Warriors colleague Cornell du Preez in the Scottish set-up with the duo departing after Saturday's Gallagher Premiership home game with Wasps (3pm).

Russell has been told it is down to him to salvage his Scotland career after he was stood down for the Ireland clash following a late-night drinking session.

The stand-off's participation in the rest of the championship has been thrown into serious doubt after Gregor Townsend decided he had no option but to take disciplinary action when Russell failed to report for training on Monday morning.

The 27-year-old has now returned to Paris with his international future hanging by a thread.
