Munster have announced that Peter Stringer will move to Newcastle Falcons on a loan basis once his term in Saracens is over.

Stringer should move to Newcastle in early March and it's expected he will be available for selection for the Falcons for their home game against Harlequins on March 12th.

The Irish international scrumhalf has been on loan from Munster to Saracens since December providing cover to the Premiership champions following serious injuries to Neil de Kock and Richard Wigglesworth.

Mark McCall, Saracens Director of Rugby, said: "Peter has been a brilliant addition to the squad, on and off the field, and we are sorry his three-month loan spell will come to an end after our match against Northampton on March 4th."

Stringer will remain with the North East club until the end of the current season before returning to Munster.
