Anthony Mullally is a plant-based Irish rugby player nicknamed “The Vegan Warror”. He was the first publicised vegan player in the Rugby Super League.

During his career Anthony has played for Widnes Vikings, Huddersfield Giants, Leeds Rhinos and currently plays prop forward for Toronto Wolfpack.

At 6 foot 5 inches and 114 kgs, Mullally proves that a plant-based diet can provide all the nutrition we need to be big and strong!

When he’s not on the rugby pitch, Mullally runs rewilding retreats, where participants are encourged to “take a step out of your comfort zone and dive in to the nuances of masculinity, culture and consciousness in the modern world.”

Now I look back I can’t believe I ever ate meat… I read up about physiology and anatomy and the more I looked into it, the more I personally came to the decision we are not designed to eat meat. I feel evidence is more compelling for a vegan diet.
