Connacht Rugby today confirmed the signing of Quinn Roux on a two-year contract.

Quinn Roux arrived at Connacht during the summer on an initial four-month loan deal from Leinster where he played for two seasons having joined from Western Province in 2012.

The loan deal with Connacht was recently extended to the end of the current season and Roux has now signed a new two-year contract to remain in Galway.

At Connacht, the 6ft 6ins, 19 stone South African has played in 14 games, starting in all but one.

Leinster Rugby would like to wish Quinn the best of luck at Connacht.
