Ireland second row Quinn Roux has will link up with former Munster head coach Johann van Graan at Bath after completing a move to the Premiership club from Toulon.

The 31-year-old, who was born in South Africa, won the 2012 Vodacom Cup with Western Province and earned Super Rugby caps for the Stormers before switching to Leinster in 2012.

Two years later he went on a season-long loan at Connacht and then signed permanently for the Westerners, where he made over 100 provincial appearances and won 16 caps for Ireland.

Roux moved to Toulon in the summer of 2021, featuring on 14 occasions for the Top 14 outfit last season.

He's expected to provide competition and injury cover at the Rec following news of Charlie Ewels' ACL knee injury, which he sustained on England duty in Australia.

Van Graan, who was confirmed as the incoming Bath head coach last January, said: "Quinn is a class line-out operator who offers great physicality to our options in the second row.

"He is an established international with strong rugby experience and we are delighted to have someone of his pedigree on board."
