Cork Legend To Reach European Milestone

Peter Stringer is in line to become the third player to make 100 appearances in European competitions when Bath take on Mogliano in their Amlin Challenge Cup game at the Recreation Ground on Saturday. Stringer, who celebrates his 36th birthday today (Friday, 13 December), is poised to join former Munster teammates, Ronan O'Gara and John Hayes, in the ERC 100 Club. His ex-half back partner, O'Gara, leads the way with 112 European matches, while Hayes ended his illustrious career on 103. Stringer made his European debut in a Heineken Cup clash for Munster against Perpignan on 10 October, 1998. He played 93 games in the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup for Munster between 1998 and 2011 before switching to Saracens, and then Bath. He made four appearances for Saracens in the Heineken Cup and has featured in three Amlin Challenge Cup games to date for Bath. Former Munster and Ireland outhalf Tony Ward will be on the show at 6pm on Saturday to look back on Stringer's European journey.
