2015 was a big year for agile Loose-forward Dillon Hunt, with resulting selection for the New Zealand U20 Side and also debuting in 2015 for Otago in the  ITM Cup Championship.  Auckland-born Hunt was in strong form in the 2016 ITM Cup Championship, but an unlucky start to the Championship with injuries meant some time out. However, Hunt returned with his classic Loose-forward playing style and agility across the paddock, and will be hoping to retain great form from the ITM Cup to lead into his new role within the Highlanders.  Hunt debut for the Highlanders in round 3 against the Blues at Eden Park after being called into the team as injury cover.
