Watch: Peter Stringer Pays Emotional Tribute To Anthony Foley

Last night during an appearance on the Late Late Show, Peter Stringer spoke with real honestly about his career to date and the desire that keeps him interested in the game. At 40, he is not done quite yet.

The former Munster man is currently without a club although confirmed he has several offers on the table. The clubs who have made contact are based abroad. Stinger's career included 98 caps with Ireland and 15 years with Munster before he enjoyed stints with Saracens, Newcastle, Bath, Sale and Worcester.

While at Munster, Stringer won two European Cups and proved crucial to their success in 2006. In the lead up to the final, he had been criticised for not scoring enough tries. Against Biarritz, he landed a famous try off a scrum that allowed Munster secure a 23–19 win and their first ever Heineken Cup.

Stringer was reminded of this moment during last night's show but admitted it's a tough watch now.

"It's heart-breaking. I think about the guy every single day."

The way his old team-mates speak of him is a testament to the spirit of that team and the monumental figure that Foley was. Just last week Donncha O'Callaghan revealed how he bonded with Munster players he didn't even know as they struggled to come to terms with the loss of an icon.

Stringer also confirmed he has no intention of retiring, but that he has been immensely glad of the opportunity to spend some time with his family since he departed Worcester.
