Biography

Matthew Burke is one of the genuine superstars of world rugby.

Since his Wallaby debut in 1993, the NSW Waratahs star has established himself as one of the game's finest backs, playing Test rugby in three positions: fullback, wing and outside centre. As a goal-kicker, he's consistently proven he's one of the game's all-time greats.

Rated in 1999 by a panel of experts as the best Australian and NSW Waratahs fullback in the code's history, Burke has set his sights on passing Michael Lynagh's record points haul of 911 during the 2004 season.

Australia's most capped fullback, Burke, holds numerous international and Australian points scoring records, including most points in Tests in a calendar year (189 points in 11 Tests), most points in Tests against the British Lions (25 points), New Zealand (24 points), France (25 points), Scotland (25 points), in a Test series overseas (74 points in four Tests), against New Zealand (159 points in 14 Tests), most penalty goals in a Test match against South Africa (eight), New Zealand and Wales (both seven) and the British Lions (six).
