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
