Dylan joined Worcester in 2003 after moving to England and was one of three players who joined the Northampton Saints Academy from Worcester Warriors in 2004. After representing England as an 18-year-old [he qualified through English ancestry] Dylan was selected for the U19 age group in 2004, a year young. After an impressive series of 2005 Six Nations and World Championship performances in his second year at prop for England U19s he was quickly drafted into the U21 squad for the equivalent tournament in Argentina later that same year, aged only 19, where he proved invaluable cover for all three front row positions. In his first season with Northampton he quickly proved his worth, pulling on a Saints jersey on 16 occasions, often at number 2 with England hooker Steve Thompson adding his weight on the flank. His performances earned him a call up to the England Saxons squad for the 2007 Six Nations, when he went on to score a try in both matches against Italy A and Ireland A, before a disciplinary ban cut his season short and prevented his inclusion in the Saxons' squad for the 2007 Barclays Churchill Cup. Man of the Match in 2008-2009 European Challenge Cup final victory over Bourgoin.
