Matt Minto (born 18 December 1990) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Central Queensland Capras in the Queensland Cup. He plays at halfback and fullback and previously played for the Newcastle Knights in the National Rugby League.
Born in Rockhampton, Queensland, Minto played his junior rugby league for the North Knights, before being signed by the Central Queensland Comets in the Queensland Cup.
Minto is the nephew of former Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys player Scott Minto.
At the end of 2007, Minto signed with the Penrith Panthers. He was a part of the Panthers' inaugural NYC squad in 2008, but returned to Queensland due to homesickness before he could play a game. In 2009, he signed a 2-year contract with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. He played for the Bulldogs' NYC team in 2009. In 2010, Minto returned to the Central Queensland Comets, after finding out his partner was pregnant, while still contracted to the Bulldogs. In 2011, he joined the Eastern Suburbs Tigers. In 2012, he joined the Mackay Cutters while doing a pre-season with the North Queensland Cowboys. After winning the Queensland Cup premiership with the Cutters in 2013, he attracted the interest of National Rugby League clubs, Newcastle Knights, North Queensland Cowboys and Wests Tigers. However, a phone call from Knights coach Wayne Bennett swayed him to sign a train and trial contract with the Knights. After impressing in the pre-season, his Knights contract was upgraded from train and trial to a full-time 1-year contract.
In Round 2 of the 2014 NRL season, Minto made his NRL debut for the Knights against the Canberra Raiders. At the conclusion of the 2014 NRL season, he was released by the Knights. On 3 November 2014, he signed a contract with Queensland Cup team Central Queensland Capras for 2015.
Minto continued to play for the Capras for the remainder of the 2016 season before he was released at the end of the season. He attracted offers from several NRL clubs but turned them down to stay in Queensland. He decided to part ways with the Capras at the end of 2016.
Minto joined the Souths Logan Magpies in 2017.
