David Norman "Dave" Hewett (born 14 July 1971) is a former rugby union player from New Zealand, currently working as coach, whose usual position was prop.

He played for the Crusaders in Super Rugby and for Canterbury in the Air New Zealand Cup. He made his debut for the All Blacks at the age of 30 in November 2001 against Ireland and won 22 full caps for the national team scoring two tries.[1] Hewett had a brief three-game spell with the Welsh regional team the Llanelli Scarlets during the 2004-05 Celtic League season then went on playing the same tournament for Edinburgh Rugby until 2007, his last year as professional.

Since 2010 he has worked as Crusaders' assistant coach.[2] Hewitt was named as interim head coach for the United States in October 2017, pending the planned arrival of U.S. head coach Gary Gold in mid-2018.
