Josh Dickson

2nd Nov 1994 2.00m/109kg No 4 Lock

Dickson represented New Zealand in the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship in his home country and signed for Otago in 2014.

He made his senior debut playing for the Otago Razorbacks in the 2014 ITM Cup where he made 3 substitute appearances before becoming more of a regular the following year.

Solid performances for Otago over the course of three provincial seasons put him on the radar and was signed by the Highlanders for the 2017 Super Rugby season.

Dickson didn't make his Super Rugby debut in 2017 but came off the bench for a 26-minute cameo in the historic win over the British and Irish Lions.

Josh earned his first Super Rugby cap 2018 and will be wanting to challenge the established locks to add to his current cap tally.

A tall, athletic lock he has benefitted from a solid season of Mitre 10 Cup rugby with Otago where they defended the Ranfurly shield the majority of the 2019 season.

As a result of his strong performances, Dickson got capped 7 times for the Highlanders making 21 carries and 39 tackles in the 2020 season.

Dickson's fine form resulted in selection for the Maori All Blacks where he made 3 appearances between 2021-2022.

In his 2022 Super Rugby season, he made 13 appearances making 120 tackles throughout the campaign and scored 2 tries.
