Glasgow Warriors fly-half Duncan Weir cannot wait for their pivotal PRO12 showdown with Ulster after battling back from a four-month injury lay-off.

The Scotland international, who returned to the Warriors side last weekend against Ospreys, has missed a large chunk of the season due to a bicep problem.

But now back in action and looking forward to playing in front of 10,000 fans at Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday, Weir could not be happier at the Warriors.

"It's been a longer process for me but I'm happy where I'm at at the minute and my fitness was fine at the weekend, so I'm really happy with my game and looking forward to the weekend," he told the Glasgow Warriors website.

"It's about grasping every opportunity that comes my way, it'll be a squad effort and hopefully we can get a win and look to reach the final again this year."

Glasgow enter the regular-season finale on the back of a 21-10 loss to the Ospreys at Liberty Stadium but that isn't getting the side down this week.

"We can learn a lot from our last game against Ospreys. We had many unforced errors in our own half which gave them cheap field possession," he said.

"They managed to keep the scoreboard ticking over and we didn’t play the way we can in our own third.

He added on this week's opponents: "Ulster have been up at the top of the league for many years now and every time we play them we know it's going to be a hard battle because of the physicality that they bring.

"Everyone needs to be patient and know their role in order to break them down to try and pick up the win."
