One of the best acts on the international circuit at the moment Scottish comedian Raymond Mearns is an absolute must see, having rose to fame winning Jongleurs and staring in the cult hit TV show and Internet sensation “The Limmy Show”. An absolute huge hit that blew the roof off on his debut weekend, we are delighted to have Raymond back and are certain he can do the same again. Not to be missed!

If you have not already secured your ticket for the event at the Rhinos special discounted rate of €15 (including free drink) get in touch today. There are only a handful of tickets left. It has all the makings of a great night out and will get you in Rhino form for the weekends season opener.

The Dublin Rhinos 2013 Awards Night held in the Woolshed Baa & Grill was a night filled with fun, food & drink!

Celebrating a season with a 2-6 record is not easy, but looking beyond those numbers you can see 2 losses by a combined 9 points – just one score in each game. That is the difference between a poor 2-6 and a healthy 4-4 showing. On top of that when you can beat one of the best teams in the league, a Shamrock Bowl finalist to boot, there are plenty of positives to carry into the off season and beyond.

Putting a cap on the 2013 season with food and drink, the annual Rhinos Roasties Awards were first given out before the hardware was awarded.

First up was the Rookie of the Year award – taken by Paul Richardson (LB) who throughout his first season playing American Football looked like a seasoned veteran. A natural to the game and reliable to boot, has a promising future in the game.

The Captains Award is voted on by the players who Captained the team during the season and Paul Hosford (WR, K) was the unanimous choice for the award. A hard working player who never gives up, the attitude the Rhinos strive to breed.

Your Special Teams MVP for 2013 is Oisin Russell-Conway (OL), an ever present fixture on the Rhinos battlefield Oisin is always found near the ball carrier putting defenders on the ground on special teams and thoroughly deserves his award.

Offensive MVP was awarded to Barry Bolton (OL) starting the season at left tackle but moving back to centre early in the year, Barry anchored the offensive line.

The Defensive MVP was given to Adam Skelly (CB) who over the course of the season racked up interception after interception taking points off the opponents scoreboard.

The Most Valuable Player for 2013 was given to linebacker Eoin Fox. Foxy is the surest of tacklers and is always at the point of attack making plays. Whether it is making a tackle for a loss or putting ball carriers on the ground Eoin Fox can always be relied upon to be on top of the ball on any given play. If that wasn’t enough, Eoin was the defensive captain who took charge of the defense, relayed the calls during games and helped coach the players during practices. A more fitting MVP you will not find.

Congratulations to all award winners on their awards, 2013 may be over but 2014 is only around the corner.

The Dublin Rhinos finished the 2012 season with a team best 4-4 record.

From the first game of the season, the 38-0 victory over Tullamore to the last game, a loss to Carrickfergus there were many stand out moments. Players on offense, defense and special teams made big plays throughout the year but there were a couple of players who stood out and were awarded with most valuable player awards from the coaches.

Tension builds as the Awards sit in the Rhino Corner of the Woolshed

The Rhinos descended upon the Woolshed on the 28th of July 2012 to celebrate a season of highs and lows which culminated in the Rhinos second play-off appearance.

 Up for grabs on the night were the Overall MVP, Offensive MVP, Defensive MVP, Special Teams MVP, Rookie of the Year and the Captains Award (given to a player, voted by the captains).

Your 2012 Dublin Rhinos Most Valuable Players

 

From left to right your winners are: Alan Maxwell – Captains Award, Barry Bolton – Most Valuable Player, Stephen Mooney – Special Teams MVP, Shane McKeogh – Rookie of the Year, Nick Newby – Defensive MVP, Robert Pops – Offensive MVP.

Congratulations to the award winners and a big thank you to everyone who came on the night to make it a big success.

But of course a Rhinos awards night would not be complete without the traditional Roastie Awards, and there was no shortage of stupid moments in 2012 that deserved awards!
