Dillon Hunt has had quite the ride in the last 12 months. 2017 resulted with numerous injuries in the loose forward stocks for the Highlanders, which gave a chance for Hunt to impress off the bench against the Blues on March 11. After 12 games for the Highlanders, Hunt impressed enough to earn his debut for the Barbarians at Twickernam, then played for the New Zealand XV against a French XV the consecutive week.
In 2018 Dillon Hunt carried a high workload due to injury in the loose forwards, one of the competitions top tacklers who has built his game on work rate and efficiency. This was rewarded with his first All Blacks cap in November against Japan in Tokyo. He will be looking to build on his 2018 form to command a regular starting spot.
