Sydney - Wallabies scrumhalf Luke Burgess has re-signed with the Australian Rugby Union and the Waratahs for a further two years, both organisations said on Friday.

In a boost for the Waratahs, who head to South Africa next week for their final three matches in this year's Super 14 series, Burgess followed the lead of skipper Phil Waugh and centre Rob Horne in committing to the Sydney team.

"Knowing I'm signed up for another two years allows me to just concentrate on my footy and help to achieve the goals of both the Waratahs and Wallabies," Burgess said.

Burgess, 25, made his Test debut last year and finished the year with 11 international appearances after starting in all four of the Wallabies' tour internationals in Europe.
