They began well with a 14-3 defeat of the 2012 Aviva Premiership champions and despite suffering a 43-25 loss at Franklin's Gardens they pushed the Tigers all the way at Welford Road to record a thrilling 27-27 draw.
George Ford produced another dominant all-round display against his former employers with the overwhelming feeling of disappointment a sign of how far the standards set by the club have progressed this season.
And having worked so hard to earn their current lofty position of third Stringer believes the entire squad will be working just as hard to build on the excellent platform that has been set.
"We looked at the Christmas period we had and it was a tough few weeks with Northampton and Leicester away and Harlequins at home but we have come through and maintained our top-four place," said the scrum-half.
"And that is exactly where you want to be positioned come the end of the season so that we can challenge in a semi-final and final.
"With 20 minutes to go against Leicester and ten points ahead we are thinking we are the dominant side and could hold on but unfortunately we didn't and credit to Leicester for that.
"We have seen it from them before and first and foremost we are disappointed but a draw at Welford Road is a good result.
"In the past teams go there and have been delighted with a draw but the way we have come on in the last few months and the performances and results we have had, we have to be disappointed.
"Things are by no means perfect and we are still licking our wounds a bit from the Northampton defeat but we are building back up to the run of wins we have had."
Now faced with a break in the Aviva Premiership, Mike Ford's side first face Newport Gwent Dragons in the Amlin Challenge Cup followed by a home tie with Bordeaux Beagles.
And with Ford likely to call upon the full contingent of his squad over the next month, with the LV= Cup also returning, Stringer is looking for everyone to help build more momentum.
"I have played against them [Newport Gwent Dragons] a number of times when I was at Munster and Rodney Parade is a difficult place to play.
"We can't afford any slip-ups and it is all about building momentum and keep the pressure on ourselves to perform as well as we can and as well as we have been.
"We have a great squad here and guys want to be playing and whoever gets the chance they can try and carry on the good work we have been doing."
