Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: 2013 votes 4; career votes 4.
Draft History: 2010 local talent access selection (Gold Coast)

Imposing forward who has started putting a large imprint on games.

The 23-year-old from Cairns kicked a club-record six goals against Greater Western Sydney, in possibly the best performance by a forward in the SUNS’ short history.

After missing nine of 10 games mid-season with an ankle injury, Dixon returned just as strong, kicking two goals in a commanding display against Carlton when playing as a ruckman.

Ideally suited to the second ruck role, Dixon loves to crash packs but is arguably at his best with second efforts once the ball hits the ground.

An intimidating force crucial to the SUNS’ progress.
