Aviva Premiership Rugby Club Bath have signed former Ireland scrumhalf Peter Stringer as a short-term injury cover.

Stringer played for Saracens and newcastle Falcons in last year's Premiership season on a similar basis.

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."
