Coaches

It is with great excitement that we introduce the Rhinos 2018 coaching staff.

Rhinos stalwart and mainstay Barry Bolton will take up the coaching reins, having retired from playing after over a decade. 

He will be joined by former Rhinos HC Mark Lawless, who will coordinate special teams and be the assistant head coach. 

Former Rhinos tight end Ross Carrick will call plays as offensive coordinator, while Nick Newby will continue as defensive coordinator.

Returning Rhino Sean Miller will be the team’s strength and conditioning coach, while a host of former players, and one current captain, will coach positions.

Rob Healy, a cornerstone of the offensive line for the last five years, will take on coaching duties on the line, while Carrick will work with receivers and tight ends. Boston-area native Lorcan Sherlock returns to the red and black to coach running backs, while Chris Cullen will handle the defensive line.

Linebackers will be coached by former Rhinos captain Eoin Fox and Fintan Corr. 

Current team captain Adam Skelly will coach defensive backs. 

The Rhinos board is delighted to welcome all of our coaches this year. Each one has given years of service to the club and will look to bring success to the Rhinos in 2018. 

The coaching team:

Head Coach: Barry Bolton
Assistant Head Coach: Mark Lawless
Offensive Coordinator: Ross Carrick
Defensive Coordinator Nick Newby

Strength & Conditioning: Sean Miller

Positional coaches:

THE DUBLIN RHINOS are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as 2017 recipients of a grant from the Community Integration Fund, an initiative of the Department of Justice and Equality.

129 organisations nationwide will receive grants of up to €5,000 each for activities to support the integration of migrants within our communities.

The funding will allow the Rhinos purchase equipment which will allow migrants new to Ireland further their development in American football, at the same time as becoming part of the Rhinos community.

The Rhinos have always had a vast array of nationalities represented, with players from Brazil, Venezuela, America, Romania, Denmark, Latvia and the UK among those who pulled on the red and black this year.

Rhino football is back!!

This Sunday, March 15th, the Rhinos travel to take on the North Kildare Reapers in the North Kildare Rugby Club at 1pm.

This was a tense fixture last season where the Rhinos came away with a narrow 12-9 victory thanks to a 4th quarter field goal.

How will both teams shape up after a long off season of recruiting and practice? Only one way to find out! Head on down to support your Rhinos in the North Kildare Rugby Club, Kilcock. Kick off is at 1pm.

Last years fixture had its fair share of huge tackles and big passing plays, are we in for more of the same?

The game had no shortage of high flying tackles
