Sydney Roosters legend Anthony Minichiello joined The Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell to discuss his favourite moment of his successful career.


A career glittered with many trophies from all formats – domestically, State of Origin and internationally, Mini shared why his very last title was the one that meant the most.

‘I’ve been pretty lucky and fortunate that I’ve played at good Roosters outfits my whole career.

‘But [it’s] the 2013 Grand Final,’ said Minichiello.

‘Going through injuries and making the sacrifices off the field.’

Mini explained how in the 2013 Grand Final victory over Manly Sea Eagles, that the veterans were the players that were able to swing momentum back to the Eastern Suburbs outfit.

‘It gets frantic, you’re down, some players start to panic.

‘That’s the beauty of having older heads in the team.

‘I was probably the oldest in the team but we had Sonny Billy Williams and James Maloney.

‘We kept it simple, we did our own jobs and we came through to win the match.’
