The NRL has paid tribute to journalist and broadcaster Rebecca Wilson, who passed away on Friday morning aged 54.

Wilson was a columnist with The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph, and had a long history in Rugby League.

"Rebecca was fearless, not only in her opinion but in her unflinching quest to seek out the truth," NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

"While we didn't always agree, nobody could ever doubt her passion both for sport and for journalism.

"The fact that she fought an illness in private while still so strongly fighting for what she felt was right was both admirable and courageous.

"She was a pioneer in many respects for women in the game, women in sports and women in sports journalism."
