DARC had a great day at PSA Murphy today working with the Plano Rugby Club in bringing rugby to the local youth and potential USA Eagles and Olympic Medalists. We are staunchly in support of youth rugby and we have big plans for the development of it in the new year. We would like to thank all the DARC guys for giving back to the sport that they love so much.
DARC's Dallas Cup team faced off against a much improved Dallas Diablos team yesterday at lake Highlands Park. DARC won out with a final score of 79 - 31. DARC would like to thank the Diablos, the referee and all those that attended as we continue develop rugby in the DFW area. It was a big day for one of our members. We were very honored that our former president Mr. Richard Almond decided to spend a part of his wedding day playing the game we all love with his Rugby Family. We wish him and his new bride all the best in the future.
Darc takes on the Dallas Diablos in its second Dallas Cup game today at lake highlands at 2.00pm. After a tough fought victory over the Dallas Rugby club last week we hope to see the results pay off today.
Another great day of rugby for DARC. Darc's Dallas Cup team defeats a highly experienced Dallas Reds third side 33-10. Darc then played a 40 minute highly intense half and defeated the Dallas Reds second side 27-0

Today's game versus Alliance RFC has been cancelled due to Keller closing all city fields. It will be rescheduled in the meantime.

DARC emerges victorious against an incredibly fast Orange County Ravens. DARC won 44-28 and advances to the USA national championship semi finals. The game was played in perfect conditions. We thank all those that made the trip to support us and the Ravens for giving us a great game.
The Dallas Athletic Rugby Club would like to congratulate our Head Coach Gordon Hanlon as he starts working with the USA Women's National Team. He will travel to Virginia to join up with the squad this Sunday. Gordon has also been invited to attend the International Rugby Academy of New Zealand High Performance coaching course. The IRANZ coaching course is the highest rated course in the world and to learn from the best coaches in New Zealand is an opportunity unlike any other. Gordon contributed regularily on This Is Texas Rugby, writing articles and was part of the TRU D1 pick em panel. He has grown up surrounded by the game in Ireland and worked with the Texas Representative side as well as regional sides in South America. We expect him to take his same attention to detail and sunny disposition and make a huge impact going forward. Gordon will be DARC's second represantative with the USA Eagles after Zee Ngwenya, who has 12 tries in 29 caps. Several members of DARC will be travelling to the Rugby World Cup in the UK this September and seeing a former club member step on the field at the World Cup is something we are all looking forward to.
The Dallas Atheltic Rugby Club prides itself on being more than just a team. We are a club, for a club to succeed, the core values must remain consistent on and off the field. Recently, we publicly announced an on field conduct poilcy which has been hugely successful. We have not given away a single penalty for dissent or spoken to a referee in a negative manner since announcing this. We are sure all those who officiate our games will agree that it is an intimidation free enviroment, based off of mutual respect. Last Sunday, in our regional final, we overcame a tough Euless Texans team. The win however, was marred by scenes not beffiting rugby or DARC's core values. As a result we have suspended a starting player and several supporters for their actions. We are making a big push towards a national title this year, but sacrificing who we are is something we are not prepared to do. We aim to be the best club in Texas. To be the club that everyone can be proud of. We are not quite there yet but we will be. We have aspirations to keep growing exponentially and with our own field and proposed plan for a high performance center we will get there. However, as stated earlier we will not sacrifice our core values, respect, discipline and hard work.
DARC overcame an incredibly tough Euless Texans team 14-12 to win the RRRC championship. In less than ideal conditions the game went down to wire. We have nothing but respect for the way Euless pushed us to the end. DARC advances onto the USA round of 8 where we will proudly represent Texas as we aim to bring home a national title.
In a repeat of last year's final DARC overcame a tough fight back from San Antonio RFC 43-26. We look forward toa another fiery encounter against Euless RFC in the final tomorrow at 12pm. If you can't make it out to Prairie Park, S Bagdad rd, Grand prairie make sure to watch the live stream . Stream here: https://youtu.be/JR6XgfPVlMw
