Peter John Dixon was born in Keighley on 30 April 1944 and educated at St Bees College, Durham University and Oxford University where he gained four Blues between 1967 and 1970. He played for Oxford in the victory against South Africa in 1969 and the following year against Fiji. He qualified as an anthropologist and played club rugby at flanker for Harlequins and Gosforth. Peter Dixon also represented a succession of Northern regional XVs against touring teams, including Australia (1973 and 1976), Tonga (1974), Argentina (1978) and New Zealand (1978). Most notably, he was a member of the North-West Counties team that defeated the All Blacks in 1972 and the Northern Division XV that emulated them in 1979. Between 1971 and 1978 he scored four tries in 22 internationals for England and captained the side twice in 1972. In 1971 he toured Australia and New Zealand with the British Isles and played in 15 matches, including three tests.
