O'Connor to make decision on Super rugby future this week

7:16 pm on 10 May 2011

Australian rugby's hottest property James O'Connor says he will make his decision later this week on where he'll play Super rugby from next year.

O'Connor's late try and nerveless conversion from the sideline last October helped Australia beat the All Blacks for the first time in 11 attempts.

The 20-year-old Auckland-born Wallaby is being pursued by the Melbourne Rebels, Queensland Reds and ACT Brumbies.

The Perth-based Western Force are also desperate to retain one of their brightest talents.

O'Connor says he hasn't decided and when he does it'll be a footy decision.

The Rebels, have already signed Kurtley Beale and are widely considered to be the favourites to add O'Connor to their backline.
