Peter Stringer Outlines His Future Plans After Leaving Worcester
Not done yet.
Former Ireland and Munster scrumhalf Peter Stringer want’s to continue playing rugby at the highest level, despite recently celebrating his 40th birthday.
The legendary nine was most recently plying his trade in England with Worcester Warriors, but left the Premiership side earlier this month as he was only on a short-term deal.
Speaking on the Late Late Show last night, Stringer says he wants to keep playing until his body tells him he can’t. He also said he has a couple of interesting offers on the table in terms of a new club.
“Turning 40, it didn’t symbolise finishing playing rugby for me. I always wanted to keep going.” Stringer said
“I still feels good and as though I did fifteen years ago. I still look after myself and I’m in good shape.”
“I’m not giving myself any timeframe (for retirement). I’ll keep going.”
“You speak to fellas who have finished the game, and have retired, and they say if you can play- you play as long as you can.”
“And I want to play at a competitive level. I don’t want to drift down the leagues and be somebody who’s just hanging on in there.”
“I wan’t to be in an environment that wants to win trophies.”
