Francesco Minto

20th May 1987 1.93m/102kg Openside Flanker

One of the emerging talents of Italian rugby, Francesco Minto was highlighted for aggression and dynamism. Raised in the Rugby Mirano, his native country, he joined the Rugby Parma team in 2006.

Already National youth and A, was appointed to the National Maggiore. Making his debut in a loss to Samoa, Minto has been in the squad ever since. In 2015 Minto was included in the 31-man squad to represent Italy at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Having earned 31 caps for Italy since 2012, the flanker was aiming to add to them when he was named in Italy's squad for the 2017 Six Nations tournament. Minto has played 17 times in Six Nations but is yet to score.
