At A Combined Age Of 77, Peter Stringer And Donncha O'Callaghan Will Be Teammates

Worcester Warriors announced this morning that they have signed Peter Stringer on a six-month contract.

The former Munster man, who turns 40 in December, joins after leaving Sale at the end of last season.

Stringer has been signed as cover for South Africa scrum-half Francois Hougaard who will be away on international duty at the start of the season.

Warriors Director of Rugby Gary Gold described Stringer as being in 'incredible physical shape'.

Stringer signing for Worcester means that at a combined age of 77, he on Donncha O'Callaghan will once again be teammates.

O'Callaghan joined Worcester in 2015. Earlier this year, he signed a new deal which will keep him at the Aviva Premiership club for a third season.

Speaking about joining Worcester, Stringer said he will be delighted to once again be reunited with his old Ireland and Munster teammate, more than five years after they last played together at Munster.

I'm looking forward to meeting all the lads and being reunited with Donncha.

I'm feeling as fit and ready as ever and am genuinely excited about getting back on the field as I feel I still have plenty to offer.
