Luke Cowan-Dickie is an English professional rugby union player who currently plays for the Exeter Chiefs in the English Premiership. He was born on June 20, 1993, in Truro, England. Cowan-Dickie primarily plays as a hooker but can also play as a prop.

Cowan-Dickie began his rugby career at a young age, joining Penzance & Newlyn at the age of six. He later joined the Exeter Chiefs Academy and made his debut for the senior team in 2011, at the age of 17, in an Amlin Challenge Cup match against Cavalieri Prato.

Although he initially played as a prop, it was decided that Cowan-Dickie's potential for international recognition would be enhanced by a move to the hooker position. He continued to develop his skills and played for Plymouth Albion, a Championship club, while being dual-registered with the Chiefs.

Throughout his career, Cowan-Dickie has achieved significant success with the Exeter Chiefs. He helped them win the LV= Cup in 2014 and reach back-to-back Premiership finals in 2016 and 2017, winning the latter against Wasps. He was also part of the Chiefs' historic Premiership and European double in the 2019/20 season, winning both the Premiership final and the Heineken Champions Cup final.

In terms of his international career, Cowan-Dickie made his debut for the England national team in a warm-up match against France in 2015. He was part of the squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup and played in the final against South Africa. He has been a regular member of the England match-day squad since then, participating in the Six Nations tournaments and other international matches.

Cowan-Dickie's performances caught the attention of Warren Gatland, the head coach of the British and Irish Lions, and he was selected to tour South Africa with the Lions in 2021.

He made his Lions debut in a tour game and went on to feature in several matches, including the test series against South Africa. He scored a try in the final tour game against the Stormers and made his Lions test debut in the first Test against South Africa, scoring a try in a 22-17 victory.

Overall, Luke Cowan-Dickie has established himself as a talented and versatile player, contributing to the success of both his club and the national team.
