Munster scrum-half Peter Stringer has expressed his gratitude towards Bath for agreeing to sign him on a two-month loan deal.
"I'm really grateful to them for giving me the opportunity to play," Stringer told BBC Radio Bristol.
"It's been very frustrating [at Munster]. I still have an ambition and drive to play at the highest level. That's why I looked to move away and thankfully Bath gave me an opportunity."
Stringer has been a Munster player since 1998.
