Dixon played for Oxford University RFC in four consecutive Varsity Matches from 1967 to 1970. He played for Cumberland at county level alongside David Robinson and Butler in the back row and with Cowman at fly half. The northern section of the county championship found him playing against Gosforth and later England colleague Roger Utley and against Alan Old and Warfield (Yorkshire) and Tony Neary, Fran Cotton, Bill Beaumont and Mike Slemen (Lancashire). With several of these he played in the Northwest Counties team that in 1972, at Workington, became the first regional team to defeat a New Zealand All Black's touring team. He also played in the North of England provincial team that beat the All Blacks in 1979. He toured New Zealand in 1971 with the victorious British and Irish Lions, playing in the first, second and fourth test matches. At that time he played club rugby for Harlequins.
Dixon later worked in overseas development at Durham University, and at the University of Botswana, Institute of Adult Education.
