Nathan ‘Dingo’ Swain


Another youngster with his life ahead of him, Nathan Swain worked for Swire Shipping as the Owner’s Representative in Indonesia.

He is survived by his loving partner Anti. A teammate at the time described Nathan as a big Queenslander who loved his rugby and loved his mates. “Who will forget him dancing after winning the Jakarta 10s,” his captain at the time said. “Good on ya Swainey and I still say you sang ‘Country Roads’ better than Simsy.” Simsy described Nathan as a “jovial spirit.” “Swainey always had time for everyone, always a bubbling enthusiasm for life, and always, always, a forward, not a back,” he said. “Thanks Swainey, when the heavens light up on a dark and misty night, I’ll know that it’s you.”
