He joined French club AS Carcassonne for the 2010/11 season.[1]

Swain played from the interchange bench in the Panthers' 2003 NRL grand final-winning team in their 18–6 win over the Sydney Roosters.

In Salford's loss to Castleford, loose forward Swain threw an outrageous dummy which bamboozled the Tigers defence. Swain burst through the gap at pace and set up Karl Fitzpatrick for a memorable try.
