ASH DIXON is a dynamic player and strong ball carrier with a high work rate.
His leadership of the Highlanders Super Rugby team and Hawke’s Bay Magpies provincial team, set him up well to skipper the Maori All Blacks which he has led since 2016 and including for their match against the Lions during the DHL New Zealand Lions Series in 2017. The Ngati Tahinga-affiliated hooker first earned his call-up to the Maori All Blacks in 2013 and appeared in both matches on the North American Tour. He was selected again for the 2014 tour of Japan, although his campaign was cut short by a broken arm.
Dixon started his Investec Super Rugby career with the Blues in 2011 before switching to the Hurricanes in 2013, then to the Highlanders in 2015 where he stood in as captain and didn’t miss a match as the Highlanders claimed their first Super Rugby title. Dixon was named co-captain alongside Ben Smith for the 2018 Investec Super Rugby season, leading the team through to the Quarter Finals.
