James O'Connor will not be fit to play in Australia's four Tests in June, against Scotland and Wales, having failed to recover from a lacerated liver he suffered in a match last month.

The fly-half's Super 15 team, the Melbourne Rebels, said he needed four more weeks before he could return to contact training, ruling him out of the match against Scotland on 3 June, and a three-Test series against Wales finishing on 23 June.
