Billy Wilson Player Profile

NSW rep (1960 & 1963).
Aust rep (1959-60 & 1963).
Team mates dubbed Billy "Bluey" Wilson as rugby League's Captain Blood during his marathon career in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. Wilson played an incredible 20 seasons of top-grade football.

Billy Wilson's exploits and reputation for toughness are legendary.

Called 'captain blood' because of the amount of blood he spilled for the game, Wilson was sent off in the 1953 final and then played the 1954 semi final with a broken arm and gashed eye. Wilson played in six premiership victories with Saints. 1956 & 1958-62.

Regarded as one his finest displays. during the 1956 Grand Final Saints were reduced to 12 men. Wilson was moved to the centres, although out of position played the game of his life.

Wilson became captain in 1962 and was sent off that year's Grand Final.

He captained Australia in 1963 and then led Norths in 1965 Billy Wilson retired in 1966 but returned to play with Norths in 67 to assist the injury ravaged club

Unquestionably one of the toughest men to ever play Rugby League
