DEBUT: v Cavalieri Prato (H) 19/11/11
Already tipped for the top by former All Blacks skipper Sean Fitzpatrick, the young Cornishman is another who has progressed through to the Exeter senior ranks through the club’s Academy system at Truro College.
Having started out as a destructive loosehead prop, Cowan-Dickie has in the past year moved across the front-row to develop his game further as a hooker of the future.
Not only is the youngster a massive ball-carrying threat, but his relentless work-rate and mobility around the park make him the perfect modern-day forward.
A Six Nations title winner with England Under-20s early in 2013, he then followed that success up when he was part of the England squad that lifted the Junior World Championships in France.
