Stringer delighted with Munster deal

Peter Stringer last night expressed delight at inking a one-year contract extension with Munster.

The 34-year-old scrum half, currently on loan at Newcastle Falcons, said: “I’m delighted to be signed up again, it’s a place that’s really special to me. I have a massive love for the game, huge ambition and great desire to achieve things and to play at the highest level.

“I feel this is a stepping stone and by no means a stop-gap for me finishing the game. I want to keep playing, keep enjoying my rugby and I reckon I have a few years left in me. This is the best opportunity for me getting back to where I want to be.”

It’s good news too for his old half-back partner Ronan O’Gara, who reckons Stringer will add considerably to the Munster cause next year.

“It’s fantastic, he left the bubble but will come back and be a different player and he will add hugely to the squad. I know he was in demand in the UK, he always was an important member of our team and now that he is back he will be refreshed and looking to start games again.”
