Club stalwart Mini given one more year

Anthony Minichello

There are very few players left in the NRL that are like him, but if it was up to the man himself, he would not have it any other way – with Roosters fullback Anthony Minichello agreeing to a new 1-year deal, that will see him remain a 1-club man.

There are very few players left of that nature, and the new deal will see Mini remain with the club until the end of next season – with the club stalwart saying that his heart has always been with the Roosters.

“My heart is with the Roosters – I’m a Rooster through and through. The Roosters have played a huge role in my life both on and off the field – I’ve spent half my life here and absolutely love the place.”

Joining the Roosters in season 1997, the 2013 season will be his 14th and likely last season in the top-grade – with the stalwart excited to work with the younger players.

“I’m really excited that I will continue to be a part of the Roosters for another season. There’s a great young talented squad here and we are looking forward to a bright future.”

Nick Politis, the Sydney Roosters Chairman is pleased that the club legend has agreed to stay on with the club.

“Anthony is a very proud clubman and we are delighted to repay his loyalty to the Roosters with this extension to his contract”, said Politis.

“Mini has etched his place not only in the history books of our proud club but the game of rugby league and is a great ambassador both on and off the field.

“His great work ethic means that he continues to rank as one of the game’s leading fullbacks and his experience will continue to benefit the young and talented squad around him.”

Sydney Roosters Chief Executive, Mr Steve Noyce, added: “Mini is such a big part of the Club and a popular figure with his team mates and among Roosters Members, Sponsors and Supporters for the way he conducts himself in all facets of his life.

“With 13 years of first grade service already under his belt, it’s wonderful to have him here as part of our campaign for another season.”
