He turns 39 later this year but Peter Stringer is still stealing the show
Like a fine wine!
For those who thought that Peter Stringer's move to Bath, and subsequent switch to Sale, was an indication that his best days were behind him, think again.
The legendary Irish scrum half is showing no signs of slowing down as his performances for Sale Sharks this season were recognised at an awards dinner on Tuesday night.
Stringer signed a one year deal with Sale last May and played a crucial role in their Premiership campaign, so much so that the 38-year-old was voted player of the season by the club's supporters.
The former Munster stalwart is enjoying much more success on the pitch than his former side, who only this week confirmed the appointment of Rassie Erasmus as Director of Rugby in an attempt to address the province's decline under Anthony Foley.
Peter Stringer named Sale Sharks' player of the year at 38. Last of 98 caps for Ireland in 2011 off the bench. Shame he never made 100.
