Stringer to join Bath Rugby on short-term deal

21 January 2013

Bath Rugby can confirm the signing of Irish scrum-half Peter Stringer as short-term injury cover.

Stringer is a hugely experienced scrum-half, being one of nine players to make over 200 appearances for Munster, and the most-capped scrum-half for Ireland with 98 caps. He has played in three Heineken Cup finals, including scoring in the win over Biarritz in 2006.

Commenting on the signing, Head Coach, Gary Gold, said: "Peter is a world class professional and has an incredible amount of experience he can bring to the squad. He is still keen to compete at the highest level, and we are short at scrum-half at the moment due to injury. I'm sure he'll be a huge asset to our other nine's with his invaluable experience and exceptional work ethic."
