Mat Gardner (born 24 August 1985) is a rugby league player, who currently plays for Leigh Centurions.[2] He is the younger brother of St Helens winger Ade Gardner

Gardner made his Super League début in a match against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on 4 March 2006 for Huddersfield. He enjoyed a solid début season with the Huddersfield Giants in 2006, which included a memorable hat-trick against the Catalans Dragons and also played several games, which saw him line-up against his brother Ade.

He performed better than most people expected in the 2006 season and many people hoped he pushed hard for a place in the Huddersfield Giants line-up in 2007.

He played in Huddersfield's first seven games and scored 2 tries, although a long run in the reserves followed before he was recalled for the game against Harlequins RL.

with the Giants signing David Hodgson from Salford and Rod Jensen being established on the other wing Matt Gardner left Huddersfield and signed for the Salford City Reds for the 2008 season.

Matt became a key member of Salford’s successful 2008 squad, claiming 23 tries in 32 games, Mat was snapped up by Harlequins RL for the 2009 Super League season. Quins coach Brian McDermott stated "He and few others have made a decision to give it a go in London and we are looking forward to working with him."

For the last two seasons, Gardner has been a regular with Widnes Vikings and made 23 appearances last season, scoring three tries.

Leigh Centurions have signed up Matt Gardner for the 2012 season

Mat also scrapes into the starting nine of The Raven Hotel darts team in the St.Helens Interbrew Darts & Doms League.
