O'Connor eyes Wallabies recall


Toulon back James O'Connor wants to return to Super Rugby so he can add to the 44 international caps he has won with Australia.

O'Connor became the second youngest player to be capped by the Wallabies when he made his debut at the age of 18 against Italy in 2008.

However, moves to London Irish and latterly Toulon have limited his outings due to the restriction on selection for overseas based players - Michael Cheika only able to choose those with more than 60 caps.

As a result O'Connor has not featured on the international stage since 2013 but he intends to return to Australia in the future and force his way back into the Test team.

"One hundred per cent I see myself playing back in Australia - when is the question," he told rugby.com.au.

"For the time being, I'm enjoying rugby here and there's still a lot I want to improve on and learn but Australia's home and that's where I want to be playing my rugby.

"The goal's always to wear that gold jersey again so to be able to pull that on would be pretty amazing."
