Today we mourn the loss of player, teammate and friend Simon Dunn, who passed away on Saturday.
Simon was a passionate, talented, loyal and loved member of our team. He most recently celebrated his 10th year with the Sydney Convicts, whilst competing with his fellow teammates at the Bingham Cup in Ottawa in 2022.
His talents extended well off the rugby field too, and we know Simon made a positive impact through is work in the community, often speaking publicly about the challenges faced by LGBTIQA+ people in sport.
We are devastated by the loss of Simon to our club and community, and share our deepest condolences with Simon’s family, friends and those who Simon brought love to over the years. We also extend our thoughts and love today to our friends at the London Kings Cross Steelers, and the Australian Bobsleigh team where Simon also made a huge impact during his time when overseas.
Once a Convict, always a Convict.
Simon you will be forever in our hearts and memories.
