Earlier in the week we announced the signing of Peter Stringer and here we have an in depth look at Irish scrum-half's career.
Stringer made his debut for Ireland against Scotland in the 2000 Six Nations. Over the next six years, he appeared in 76 out of Ireland's 85 matches playing his part in a team that won the Triple Crown in 2004, 2006, and 2007. He went on to become Ireland's most capped scrum-half with 98 caps.
Stringer made his Munster debut against Ulster in October 1998. His first silverware with Munster came in February 2003, when they won the Celtic League.
He played a key role for Munster during the 2005-06 Heineken Cup, helping secure the side's first ever Heineken Cup when they beat Biarritz 23-19. Sale played Munster & Biarritz in that season in the Heineken Cup, with Sale beating Munster at home in the pool stages, and losing to Biarritz in the quarter final.
He first played in the Aviva Premiership back in December 2011, when he joined Saracens on a three-month loan. At the conclusion of his loan at Saracens, he then joined up with Newcastle Falcons on loan for three months.
He was back in the Aviva Premiership on loan again when he joined Bath for three months for 2012-13 season. He was so successful that Bath signed him on a full time basis at the end of that season. He's played 52 times for the club, scoring three tries and is well-renown for being one of the fittest men in the Aviva Premiership, and has one of the quickest passes in the Premiership.
Now he is on his way to Sale and can't wait to get stuck in next season. When the move was announced he tweeted:
