The Wallabies brilliant young utility back James O'Connor has confirmed he'll miss next month's test matches against Scotland and Wales because of a liver injury.

O'Connor says he's run out of time to regain full fitness after receiving the results of a scan.

The Melbourne Rebels back suffered the injury against the Waratahs a month ago and hasn't played since.

Australia play Scotland on June 5th, and their three-test series against Wales starts four days later.
