Scotland fly-half Duncan Weir is determined to help Glasgow Warriors return to the victory trail after their recent loss to the Scarlets.

Weir and his fellow Scottish internationals at the Warriors have returned from Test duty and will provide a boost for last season’s Pro12 runners-up, whose 19-9 loss to the Welsh region at Parc y Scarlets on Friday was only their second defeat of the season.

Apart from the return of their Test players, Glasgow will also be pleased as four of their next five matches are at their Scotstoun home, starting with Sunday’s clash with the Dragons.

“We had a disappointing result on Friday but I’m excited to come back to a good atmosphere like the one we’ve built with Scotland,” Weir told the Glasgow Evening Times.

“I’m glad to be back among the boys here. We’ve got a big couple of weeks ahead of us.

“I’m desperate to go forward and grasp every minute I can get at Glasgow.

“We have a huge run of games coming up and, with four at home, it will be the key to our league and European success.

“It’s a great challenge and, as a player, you need to respond positively to the opportunities that come your way.

“When you walk back through the door your mind is completely on Glasgow.

“Throughout the month away we were still popping in on our days off to see the boys, or even coming in for a stretch or a massage.

“It’s all about driving Glasgow forward. We all understand that Friday wasn’t good enough and we didn’t meet our standards.

“We have to draw the line there and look forward and keep driving upwards.”
