O'Connor in doubt for Australia's June tests

O'Connor in doubt for Australia's June tests

Australia's James O'Connor must wait at least three weeks before having scans on his lacerated liver to determine whether or not he'll be available for selection for tests against Scotland and Wales next month.
The Wallabies and Melbourne Rebels utility back spent several days in a Sydney hospital receiving treatment after being accidentally kneed by New South Wales flyhalf Berrick Barnes as they contested possession in a Super 15 match on April 21.
He was ruled out for at least six weeks, meaning he's unlikely to play before Australia opens its international season against Scotland on June 5.
The 21-year-old O'Connor on Tuesday said he was lucky the damage was confined to his liver and he wasn't likely to have any long-term effects.
