MELBOURNE, May 23 (Reuters) - Queensland flyhalf James O'Connor will be sidelined for up to four weeks with a hamstring injury in a blow to the Reds' hopes of going deep in the Super Rugby playoffs.

O'Connor, who only recently returned to the field from a knee injury, was injured in the second half of the Reds' 34-22 win over Moana Pasifika in Brisbane.

The Reds, who are seventh, travel to the second-placed Canterbury Crusaders on Friday for their final match of the regular season.

The postseason starts with the quarter-finals next week.
