The lock arrives at The Rec as injury cover following news of Charlie Ewels’ knee injury sustained whilst on international duty with England.

Born in South Africa, Roux won the 2012 Vodacom Cup with Western Province and earned Super Rugby caps for the Stormers before switching to Leinster for two seasons.

His time in Dublin began a seven-year stint in Irish rugby mostly spent in Galway at Connacht where he made over 100 provincial appearances and appeared 16 times for Ireland.

The 31-year-old moved to RC Toulon in 2021 and featured on 14 occasions for the Top 14 outfit in his debut campaign.

“Quinn is a class line-out operator who offers great physicality to our options in the second row,” Bath Head of Rugby Johann van Graan said.

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