Leeds Rhinos signed forward Anthony Mullally, 23, from Huddersfield Giants on a three year contract from the 2016 season. There was an early chance for Rhinos fans to get a look at the Irish international, with the prop making his debut for the Rhinos against New Zealand at the end of the 2015 season.
Originally from Widnes, Anthony came through the Academy ranks at his hometown club having signed professionally from Widnes Moorfield amateur club. He made his debut for the Vikings when he was just 17 in the Challenge Cup third round win over Saddleworth Rangers in 2009. He then spent time at Brisbane Broncos before returning to Widnes following their promotion to Super League in 2012, making a further ten appearances off the bench.
The following year he joined Huddersfield Giants, making ten appearances in his first season in 2013. He finished the season as part of the Ireland World Cup squad, appearing as a replacement against England and Fiji before starting against Australia in the final pool game. At the start of the 2014 season, he had a spell on loan at Bradford, making six appearances, before returning to the Giants and finishing the season with 12 more appearances and crossing for three tries.
In his final season at the Giants he played eight times and registered one try and finished the season on loan at Wakefield where he made a further five appearances.
