Born in Goulburn, New South Wales, Dayne Weston left home at a young age to pursue his NRL dream.
In 2007, Weston's dream became a reality when he made his NRL debut for the Cronulla Sharks.
He continued to play professionally for 11 years, starring for the Sharks, North Queensland Cowboys, Penrith Panthers, Melbourne Storm and Leigh Centurions in the English Super League, before retiring and moving to the Gold Coast in 2017.
Weston comes with a wealth of experience in elite and community sport as well as the wellbeing space.
During his time at the Storm, he worked as a registered volunteer for The Royal Children’s Hospital in the Wadja unit, supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.
He has also worked on a variety of community wellbeing programs, making a considerable contribution during his time in the United Kingdom.
Weston joins QRL from the NRL game development team, working in that role for three years and brings great community rugby league expertise to his role.
His experience throughout his career and time working as a volunteer provides a great deal of lived experience on both a personal and professional level.
Weston believes he has been blessed with the opportunity to live out his purpose in life, by supporting participants in community rugby league and Intrust Super Cup teams through his role as the wellbeing operations manager based in South East Queensland.
