Player Bio

At A Glance

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

The imposing forward was restricted to 14 games through a combination of adductor, groin and quad injuries last season.

When fit, Dixon was the marking presence the SUNS required coming out of the goal square.

Had a tendency to drift in and
out of games, but the 24-year-old kicked 24 goals for the season, including a string of eight consecutive games when he kicked multiple goals.

Dixon is a dominant pack mark and has improved his play on the lead, and his combination with Tom Lynch and Sam Day in the forward 50 continued to improve. His ability to spend time in the ruck makes Dixon a crucial cog in Gold Coast’s wheel.
