A local product who had developed his game at Bacchus Marsh and Hoppers Crossing before joining the Western Jets in the national Under-18 competition, Dillon Viojo-Rainbow came to Carlton via the 2014 National Draft at selection number 28. Soon nick-named ‘DVR’ or ‘Skittles,’ he was a quick and clever left-footer who averaged 13 possessions at 73% efficiency in five matches at the 2014 Under-18 Championships, and 17 disposals in 12 games for Western Jets at TAC Cup level.
After training well over summer, Dillon was selected for a pre-season round 1 NAB Cup Challenge match against the West Coast Eagles at Mandurah, WA in February, 2015, but that was to be his only experience of senior football for the Blues. He spent all of that season, and the next - at VFL level, but despite some handy efforts, couldn’t earn promotion to the senior side and was delisted in October, 2016.
Viojo-Rainbow would line up with VFL club Port Melbourne for the 2017 season.
