Stormers star gets Bok call

A key member of the DHL Stormers pack has seen his hard work rewarded with a place in the most recent Springbok alignment camp.

Dixon was seen in photos posted on the Springboks’ social media pages of the alignment camp held in Cape Town this past week.

The Springboks did not release an official list of names that were part of the camp and Dixon was not part of the 43 players that attended the first camp in February.

The 26-year-old has been a key player for the DHL Stormers over the past two seasons, making 39 appearances in all competitions.

Able to double as a blindside flank and lock, Dixon has impressed with his hard work on defence and his physicality.

“We think BJ is a diamond in the rough,” John Dobson told Sunday newspaper Rapport.

"He still has things to work on, but he gives a team size (109kg and 1.98m), intensity and physicality. He has a huge engine.

"BJ is fearless and reminds me of some big names who represented the Boks at blindside flank.”
