Luke Burgess could begin his stint with the Rebels as early as Friday due to injuries and international call-ups.

The former Wallaby scrum-half was due to join the Rebels for the 2014 Super Rugby season, but with Nick Phipps trotting off to the Australian training camp and Richard Kingi out injured, the 28-year-old has been drafted into Damien Hill's squad.

Burgess, who has been capped 37 times by the Wallabies, has spent the last two years playing in France with Toulouse.
