The Melbourne Rebels star shanked three place kicks in the agonising 23-21 defeat, but after an improved second half O'Connor said he would relish another chance.
"One hundred percent. I'm not too fazed where I start but I would definitely love another crack at 10," O'Connor said.
"You're always better for having played a Test match and (having played) with the guys around you.
"I thought we did some good things and we let a few things go at the weekend.
"But what I take out of the game is that if we win I've done my job and if we haven't (won) then we've got to go back to the drawing board."
With little experience in the playmaker role at test level, it could be argued O'Connor made the most of a poor situation after three of his backline team-mates had left on a stretcher.
The 22-year-old notably improved when Rebels team-mate Kurtley Beale came off the bench to replace injured fullback Berrick Barnes.
And despite his infamous slip-up in front of the posts, Beale is set to bolster the Wallabies attack with the returning Christian Lealiifano after a performance Deans labelled 'outstanding'.
"He's going to be very handy for us," O'Connor said of Beale.
"Like you saw when he came on, he just straightened up the attack quite nicely and he was awesome to play with - as he always is.
"He's looking forward to the big picture and that's this Saturday. So wherever he plays he's going to create a big impact.
"Obviously we've lost Berrick to injury so he's putting his hand up for a number of different positions."
With Barnes, centre Pat McCabe and Digby Ioane sidelined O'Connor's role becomes all the more crucial and he prepares for his 41st and most crucial Test in Melbourne on Saturday.
"I'm taking this game as the biggest one of my life. This game is do-or-die and we will be up for it, this is our game," he said.
