Peter Stringer Tweets Heartbreaking Anthony Foley Tribute


My protector on the field.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

Peter Stringer is the latest former teammate to tweet a heartbreaking message as he tries to come to terms with the tragic news of Anthony Foley’s untimely death.


Stringer and Foley spent many years together with both Ireland and Munster, fighting many a battle, hoisting many a trophy. They have won, they have lost- but no loss will ever be greater than that of the life of Axel.

“My protector on the field,’ Stringer calls Foley as he lays at home feeling ‘numb and alone.’ A dark day for Ireland, sleep well Anthony.
