"He survives because I think he has the run of the mill at the Australian rugby union", Burke told the Big Sports Breakfast.
Australian rugby players Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper have been dropped by head coach Michael Chieka after breaking team protocols in the aftermath of their recent Wales defeat.
As a result, calls for Rugby Australia to sack Cheika have grown louder, with the RA board reportedly meeting on December 10 for another performance review.
Australia have suffered significant disruption after their breakdown master David Pocock was ruled out of Saturday's final November global against England at Twickenham and two players were not considered for a breach of team protocol.
Despite being axed, Ashley-Cooper and Beale, who have 200 caps between them, took part in the Wallabies' training session at Twickenham on Friday with Cheika saying they were apologetic.
Australia have strict rules in place that no guests are allowed back to players' rooms and the senior leadership group have deemed this to be unacceptable behaviour, according to reports.
After being thumped 37-18 by England on Saturday coach Michael Cheika has issued a defiant promise that Australia will be all the better for their bad 2018 and that he fully expects them to challenge for the World Cup in a year's time.
"Not really", Cheika said.

Shooting at Alabama shopping mall
One Twitter user said: 'I'm in the parking lot of the Riverchase Galleria in Alabama where a shooting just happened. It isn't the first time chaotic scenes have been seen inside Riverchase Galleria over the Black Friday period.
Beale and Ashley-Cooper have 83 and 117 caps respectively and Hooper said approaching Cheika about the situation was one of the most hard moments of his captaincy. "Sometimes the bitter taste and the scars that are left and the things that go against you make you stronger".
"It's a relatively minor team rule we have".
"But once it was pointed out to them that the rule was there for a reason, they recognised that they had erred, and they accepted the team and Michael's position".
"We have, though, got to give and take in those situations".
"We have agreed basic principles for next year with a national camp for players so next year we will be as fit as possible".
Beale wants Australia to adopt it as their formal alternative shirt at next year's World Cup.
Both players have faced off-field punishments in the past but Castle said that played no factor in the discussions around this latest incident.
Bob Dwyer, who coached Australia to the 1991 World Cup title said something needed to happen. Most of what gets under your skin is the stuff that is not true'.
