Connacht Rugby and the IRFU have announced that Quinn Roux has signed a new contract with the western province.
Roux has extended his contract by two years which will see him ply his trade for Andy Friend’s side up until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Since arriving at the Sportsground, Roux has made 85 appearances for Connacht and has earned six caps for Ireland.
Roux originally arrived at Connacht on a loan deal where previously he had played for the Stormers, Western Province and Leinster.
Announcing the contract extension, Connacht Head Coach Andy Friend said: “Quinn has been a massive player for Connacht. He is the ultimate professional and is unrelenting in his preparation and his attention to detail. As one of the established players in the squad, he is leading by example both on and off the field. His signing is another huge boost for us and I have no doubt that Quinn will be a key player for us in the seasons ahead.”
Following his contract signing Quinn Roux added: “I am delighted to be extending my contract with Connacht. I have enjoyed my time in the Sportsground and believe that we are capable of bringing further success to the province in the seasons ahead. My time here has also led to my international debut which I am hugely proud of. I am looking forward to the next two seasons with Connacht and hope to continue to establish myself as a part of the Irish squad.”
