Dillon Hunt (born 23 February 1995) is a New Zealand rugby union player who plays for the Highlanders in the Super Rugby competition.[1] His position of choice is flanker.


Hunt was called into the Highlanders squad in 2017 as an injury replacement after the team was ravaged by injuries to other loose forwards. Hunt started for the Highlanders against the touring British and Irish Lions side on 13 June 2017, taking part in the 23-22 win and delivering a solid 58 minute performance before being replaced by fellow rookie James Lentjes.

After representing the Barbarian F.C. off the bench in a 22-31 loss against the All Blacks, Hunt and fellow Barbarians back-rower Luke Whitelock were called into the All Blacks squad as injury replacements for 81-test veteran Jerome Kaino who was injured against the Barbarians side. Hunt made his debut for New Zealand against a French XV on 14 November 2017, replacing Ardie Savea off the bench with ten minutes left of the 28-23 win.

Hunt was re-signed for the Highlanders and with Otago for the 2018 season. Since his re-signing, Hunt has become a regular starter for the Highlanders and has started in every Highlanders fixture of the 2018 Super Rugby season so far.
