Ireland legend Peter Stringer has joined Worcester Warriors on a short term deal as scrum half, according to reports
The veteran is poised to provide cover for Francois Hougard. Stringer, who is 39 year old, would be featuring for the Warriors in his 40s after agreeing a six month deal.
The player has 98 Ireland caps so he is expected to bring his experience to fore as he arrives at Sixways. He would cover for first choice number nine Hougaard, who would be away with South Africa on international duty later this year.
