Dublin - Connacht's Quinn Roux has been added to the Ireland squad that will travel to the USA and Japan for their June internationals.

The South African-born lock made his debut for Ireland against the Springboks in Johannesburg last year.

Roux, 26, played for Western Province in 2011 and 2012, before signing for Leinster. He was loaned out to Connacht in 2014 and signed a permanent deal with the club the following year.

The 32-man Ireland squad will travel to New Jersey on June 5 ahead of their opening Test match against the USA Eagles on June 10 before flying to Japan for two Tests against the Brave Blossoms (June 17 and 24).
