Warriors Director of Rugby Gary Gold said:
“Peter is an experienced number nine who will play a key role in the absence of Francois.
“He’s in incredible physical shape for someone of 39 years of age, and he is an outstanding role model for our younger players.”
“I’m looking forward to meeting all the lads and being reunited with Donncha.
“I’m feeling as fit and ready as ever and am genuinely excited about getting back on the field as I feel I still have plenty to offer.”
