Roux to stay at Connacht until end of season at least

Connacht coach Pat Lam has confirmed that lock Quinn Roux will remain on loan with Connacht until at least the end of the 2014/15 season.

Lam said: "We are pleased to say we have extended Quinn Roux's deal until the end of the season which is great."

Since his arrival in pre-season, the 24-year-old South African has played in 13 games for Connacht, starting in all but one, and has been instrumental in the province's unbeaten home record.

The Connacht coach said: "He has very much impressed us. He has impressed everyone since he arrived here - the boys welcomed him, he really enjoys it, and when you tie those factors together, we see the result."

Meanwhile, medical staff will monitor the progress of outhalf Craig Ronaldson ahead of Thursday's team announcement for Friday's clash with Edinburgh.

The 24-year-old sustained a concussion scoring his try against Munster on New Year's Day.

Prop Ronan Loughney and veteran second row Michael Swift returned to training at the Sportsground yesterday, while lock Mick Kearney is expected to rejoin full training next week from his ankle injury.
