I'm still levelling, so I have a hard time finding a 'fair fight' in battlegrounds, but I've found that when I'm decently geared, and at about the same level, I don't have too much problem killing rogues with my hunter. The key thing to surviving/protecting yourself against rogues, in my experience, is opening with an AOE. If you can get them visible, they're a lot easier to do things with. Paladins have consecrate, mages have arcane explosion, hunters have flares (and pets to help out if you get sapped), priests have holy nova.I actually found that -- so long as I had a PvP trinket, I was often able to kite a rogue while holy-nova-ing along, keeping them from vanishing, and keeping myself mostly out of harms way. I've killed a number of rogues that way in Battlegrounds.Obviously, this is not Arena, and I'm clearly not a top ranked player. None of this means that a twink can't kill me -- and damn fast, often in what seems like only one or two GCDs. However, against a relatively evenly geared/levelled rogue, I've found that with some skill, I can usually do decent at putting up a decent fight. I will admit that getting out of that first sap offers a huge benefit, and I know that I can't do as well without a trinket. And maybe I'm just succeeding when fighting really crappy rogues. :)
