Peter Frilingos

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter Frilingos (1944–2004) was a sports journalist and commentator, best known for his work as a rugby league writer. He was affectionately known in the sports journalism industry as 'Chippy' because of his Greek background, with chip shops in Australia commonly being run by Greek Australians.[1][why?]

Peter was also a member of the Continuous Call Team on radio station 2GB and a regular on Foxtel's 'Main Game'.

Peter started his career at The Daily Mirror as a copyboy in February 1962 and wrote his first rugby league article in 1964. He became chief rugby league writer and when the paper merged with The Daily Telegraph in the early 1990s, he continued in that role with the merged newspaper.

His reporting methods and integrity came under severe scrutiny during the Super League war.[2] While he originally supported the ARL, he began openly endorsing Super League after a closed door meeting with News Limited management.[2] This led to him being branded News Limited’s “Chief Toady” by Media Watch.[2]

His wife was Maureen and his children are Matt (who is also a journalist), Anna and Alison.

Frilingos died at work from a heart attack, aged 59.[1]

He has an award named after him in the National Rugby League's Dally M Medal, called the 'Peter Frilingos Memorial Award'.

In August 2019, Frilingos was inducted into the National Rugby League Hall of Fame.[3][4]
