Bath have signed veteran Ireland scrum-half Peter Stringer as injury cover on a short-term deal.

Stringer played on a similar short-term deals at Saracens and Newcastle last season.

Stringer, who has made over 200 appearances for Munster, is Ireland's most-capped scrum-half, with 98 games under his belt.

Bath 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."
