Kayne Hammington has been a crucial part of the side's success over the past few seasons. In October 2016, it was announced that Hammington had earned his first full-time Super Rugby contract with the 2015 champions, the Highlanders.
Often coming off the bench to replace Aaron Smith, Kayne always manages to bring some spark to the side in the latter stages. Known for his incredible fitness and unmatched determination he managed to bring up 50 games for the club during 2021.
The Wellington born scrum-half will be a key part of Otago's success in the Bunnings NPC which includes a number of Highlanders teammates.
