He is still keen to compete at the highest level
Bath have signed Irish scrumhalf Peter Stringer as short-term injury cover.
Stringer is a hugely experienced scrumhalf, being one of nine players to make over 200 appearances for Munster, and the most-capped scrumhalf for Ireland with 98 caps.
He has played in three European Cup finals, including scoring in the win over Biarritz in 2006.
"Peter is a world class professional and has an incredible amount of experience he can bring to the squad," Bath head coach Gary Gold said.
"He is still keen to compete at the highest level, and we are short at scrumhalf 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."
