Cowboys centre Justin O’Neill is nearly back to full fitness after recovering from a life-threatening ruptured spleen injury.

After rupturing his spleen in the round 11 clash with the Raiders this year, O’Neill spent four days in intensive care in a Canberra hospital after emergency surgery - which included three blood transfusions - saved his life.

O’Neill spent several weeks after surgery in Canberra before returning home to Townsville and beginning a rehab process that will soon have him in full contact again.

"Now it is finally good to be back doing skills and some controlled contact. I’ve just got to get cleared for contact and I’ll be ready to go again in the next month.

"It is all about ticking off all the boxes and taking the road to recovery the right way and not rushing anything."
