Biography

Flashy, blond-haired fullback grabbed a piece of rugby league history when he came on a replacement for Cronulla in the 1973 grand final and dived over to score the club's sole try in the 10-7 loss to Manly. Five years later Bourke was on the wing in the Sharks' second grand final appearance, which finished in a draw, but switched to fullback for the replay. A Cronulla junior, Bourke spent a decade at the club before playing one final season with Souths in 1983. Bourke passed away in 2006, aged 51.

Your Say

David says: A great player. He went to school at Endevour High where my father taught him.
He played with the Sharks alongside his maths teacher Johhny Maguire. A sad loss. (11/09/2012)
