He followed that up with a superb 2016 Super Rugby campaign that earned him a Wallaby call-up in June 2016.

He made his international debut against England in the 1st Test on the right wing.Since his Super Rugby debut in 2008, Haylett-Petty has scored 30 points from his 43 Super Rugby caps and will be looking to add to that in 2017.

He was included in the Wallabies 2017 June Test series squad and started all three of the Wallabies Tests against Fiji, Scotland and Italy. 

Haylett-Petty returned to the Wallabies squad ahead of the 2018 June Tests after suffering a season-ending injury last year.

He made 10 appearances for his new side during the 2018 Super Rugby season, scoring five tries.

Haylett-Petty Captained the Melbourne Rebels for their 2019 Super Rugby season. 'DHP' played the first four games, before a foot injury against the Lions in South Africa cost him six weeks. Haylett-Petty returned in round 12 to then start at full-back for the remainder of the season.

Haylett-Petty was included in the Wallabies' The Rugby Championship squad, where he played in the Wallabies' opening week match against South Africa in Johannesburg. Haylett-Petty was then selected as part of the 31-man squad for the Wallabies' 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign. The speedy winger played in all four matches at his first World Cup, but did not play in Australia's quarter final loss to England.
