Before starting his successful coaching career Anthony played as a Tight-Head Prop for National 2 team Rosslyn Park RFC (2003-2006). Whilst there he had trials for the Championship side Newbury Blues under Ben Ryan. Unfortunately a recurring knee injury and subsequent operations led to retirement from the game; however the game's loss has been CRFC's gain as Anthony's coaching career testifies:
• Hartbury College (Rugby) Development Group Head Coach & Specialist Sports Lecturer
• England Colleges Southeast manager and England Colleges selector
• Essex County U18 Forwards Coach
• Drybrook RFC (Gloucestershire) Head Coach
Currently, apart from being Senior Head Coach at CRFC, Anthony is Director of Rugby at Colne Sixth Form Rugby Academy.
