Rebels utility back James O’Connor, who went down in the Rebels’ march against the Waratahs, spent the weekend in hospital following an injured midriff and was reportedly struggling to breath.

News24.com reports that O’Connor has been treated for a lacerated liver and he will be on the sidelines for at least six weeks, ruling him out of the majority of the Super Rugby fixtures before the break for International matches.

This injury could also rule him out of contention for the Wallabies’ international matches, starting against Scotland early in June.
