Fair dinkum? I always thought Beccy was an amateur Golfer?

Rebecca wilson is a deadset idiot she has always incorrect facts and knows little about rugby league. she is the reason the telegraph paper is crap.
The person that hires her has rocks for brains.

The article spent much if it's time bagging the hosts, but what made it appalling was that she kept referring to how her young kids were baddly effected by it [at that age they wouldn't have even known! what the footy show ev en was!]

Can anyone find that article?

Rebecca didn't like the way she was treated as a female journo back in the late 80's, early 90's up in Queensland by rugby league players. She thought they were rude.

She has been bitter about rugby league ever since.


Of course all AFL are saints aren't they Beccy...except when they're about to catch a train.

Repeat drink driving and made up stories for the gossip column - any credibility at all gal?

Love that photo of the golfer JW. A mirror image of our Bec.

Good to see that brilliant league journo Dean Ritchie has jumped on Wes' case. Telling the world what a bad little boy he is. Nevermind the Tri Nations hey Deano.

Wilson seems to have an anti-Rugby League
agenda. I don't think the "glass houses"
allegation will worry her too much as she
does not seem to have any journalistic
values at all. In the past she has coughed
up her sources to whoever asks whenever
threatened with legal action, and uses the
fact she was sued previously as her grounds
for breaching this journalistic golden rule. So
the "quality" of sources she gets stories from
is hardly going to be high.

So if Rebecca wWilson admitted that on the TV,
that is an admission of supplying drink to a
minor, that is a crime. Wes should get his legal
team to drum up that tape and hand it over
to police and have her charged, it is not far
removed from the situation Wes currently finds
himself in is it ?

I'm pretty sure it's legal for a parent to give their underage child a drink in their own home. I'm sure there would be limits though.

was pretty black and white.

I hope they all stay away from RL... RL doesn't need Bec culture lowering standards in RL clubs across the country..

The lowest of low journalism that anyone of us could do. How easy would it be to get paid for writing crap people send you 3rd hand - much of it untrue.
Didn't she claim that she had checked her "facts" with City Rail?

I'm still waiting for LockyNo1's post "it was an isolated incident". That's what the idiot always says about AFL players.
