Peter Stringer to join Sale Sharks

PStringer-Sale-1905

Sale Sharks have strengthened their squad for next season by signing ex-Ireland international Peter Stringer on a one year contract.

Stringer is the most capped Irish scrum-half of all time with an impressive tally of 98 full caps – many of them alongside his former Munster team mate Ronan O’Gara.

He played a record 230 games for Munster but also has plenty of Aviva Premiership experience having starred for Saracens, Newcastle and current club Bath over the last four years.

Stringer, 37, could sign off at Bath with a Premiership title to his name as his club face Leicester in the semi-finals on Saturday.

The scrum-half’s professional career started with Munster back in 1998 and he played in three Heineken Cup finals including the win over Biarritz in 2006.

He is well known for his quick decision making, darting runs and pinpoint passing of the ball.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, "Once I heard that Peter was looking for a new club I made my move and I am delighted he has decided to join us.

"He, like Chris Cusiter, has bags of experience and I am sure he will be a great addition to our squad.

"Peter will also be able to assist youngster James Mitchell who is improving all the time and will no doubt be fighting for a place in the team soon."

Sale Sharks are also able to confirm that prop Alberto De Marchi is leaving the club this summer following the mutual decision to terminate his contract.
