Luke Burgess great run almost out-Rokocoko's Joe Rokocoko!

Luke Burgess great run almost out-Rokocoko's Joe Rokocoko!

There was a great moment in the Super 14 match between the Blues and the Waratahs in Sydney recently. It involved young Waratahs scrum half Luke Burgess, who many are tipping to be the Wallaby replacement for the throne so that was so famously held for so many years by George Gregan.

Burgess actually spent four frustrating seasons with the Brumbies as understudy to Gregan, before making the move to Sydney. Less than two months ago Burgess was playing club rugby, seeing as he was third in the pecking order at the Waratahs, behind Brett Sheehan and Josh Valentine.

So when Burgess gets his chance, he has to take it, and take it he almost did when he made this exciting break against the Blues. The flying number nine had a full go at getting around Smokin Joe Rokocoko, and almost pulled it off, but for the experience of Rokocoko who wasn't fooled for long and had the gas to get back and catch the youngster.

A classic moment, on both defence, attack, and in the commentary box.
