The National Old Catholic Church gives this as the definition of Catholic:

Question: How can you be Catholic but not Roman?
“Catholic” means (1) the clergy have Apostolic Succession or have unbroken lineage back to Christ, (2) celebrate the sacramental ministry, (3) adhere to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as expressed through Apostolic Tradition.

By the above definition, the Anglicans most certainly are Catholic.
