A man who has come up through the ranks of the great Canterbury rugby machine, Dickson has really come of age as a sevens player since making his debut in the 2012/13 season. He has been a key ball winner for the team at kick off, showing great strength and agility – a versatile athlete who has played Aussie Rules as well.
He cites Richie McCaw as an inspiration and his dedicated approach to fitness and training like the great captain has paid dividends with the 1.92m forward becoming an indispensable asset in recent seasons.
