Bath have signed experienced Ireland scrum-half Peter Stringer as short-term injury cover, the English Premiership side announced on Monday.

The 35-year-old Munster great has won 98 Ireland caps and played in three European Cup finals with the province.

“Peter is a world-class professional and has an incredible amount of experience he can bring to the squad,” said Bath head coach Gary Gold.

“He is still keen to compete at the highest level, and we are short at scrum-half at the moment due to injury,” the South African added.

“I am sure he will be a huge asset to our other nines with his invaluable experience and exceptional work ethic.”
