Peter Stringer will this week join up with Bath on a short term contract.
The 35 year old, capped 232 times for Munster, has signed up with the English Premiership side on a similar deal to the one arrranged last season with Saracens, but he will be available to Munster, if required for the knock out stages of the Heineken Cup.

A statement issued this afternoon stated "Munster today announced that they have reached agreement with Bath Rugby for Peter Stringer to join the English Premiership club on a short term contract.
"Stringer will join Bath this week and remain there on a 7/8 week loan basis, an arrangement similar to last season when the 35 year old enjoyed stints with Saracens and Newcastle Falcons. He will be available to Munster for the Heineken Cup knock-out stages if required."

Commenting on the news Munster coach Rob Penney said. "As things stand, the opportunity that Peter desires to play top level rugby consistently doesn't present itself here in Munster. Cogniscant of that desire we are happy to accomodate him and Bath Rugby's request and hope the arrangement proves mutually beneficial.

"A consummate professional is every aspect of his conduct, he makes the move with our very best wishes."

Stringer has made just nine appearances for Munster this season, seven of those from the bench.
