Anthony ‘Mini' Minichiello is the most-capped player for the Sydney Roosters and is the leading try scorer in their history. In an NRL career that spanned over 15 seasons, Mini played in six grand finals and won two Premierships. The first premiership was in 2002 and then again in 2013, where he captained the Roosters to the Minor Premiership before he led the team to Premiership glory. Mini played for Australia on 19 occasions, made 11 appearances for the NSW Blues and represented NSW City four times, and captained Italy in the 2013 World Cup.
In 2006 persistent back, neck and ankle injuries looked like they would halt his career. But a determination to succeed led to the rebuilding of his body and lifestyle, where he discovered the power of nutrition and how it can heal and repair the body.
Since his retirement, Mini has continued to promote the importance of health and fitness. Being the founder of MINIFIT he delivers live and on demand content in fitness, nutrition & lifestyle. Mini also runs school holiday clinics and schools term programs aligned to the NSW PDHPE syllabus to drive real change around growing up healthy and strong.
