Rajans Rugby

 
Final Ruck !!
Only one game left and Rajans on top!
We'll be closing the donation box after the last game on June 8th, Saturday. The entire collection will be transferred to ORRFA.

As Rajans, while been proud of what the young lads have achieved, we'd like to thank the coaching staff, ORRFA(Old Rajans Rugby Football Association) and everyone who took part in this dream run. There's no better time in history than now, to Support Rajans Rugby!

After all, it's a game...The last game is at Royal College Sports Complex, Colombo and there's no better place to wrap up the season in style than that.
At the brink of victory, let's not forget the school and game is larger than anyone. Please spread the word; none of us want a post match incident.

HISTORY OF DHARMARAJA RUGBY
 
A good article on History of Rajans Rugby: Dark horse Dharmaraja turns into favorites
 
 
FACTS AND TRIVIA
 
In 2011 School League Division A, Rajans played 11, won 3, lost 8 and relegated to Division B
 
In 2012 School League Division B, remained unbeaten through the season and won the Championship. Also, won Inter-School Rugby 7s. And got promoted to the elite group Division A again.
 
In 2013 School League Division A , fingers crossed, check the above table.
 
This great revival was made possible by ORRFA.

The Old Rajans Rugby Football Association (ORRFA  - The Rock of Rajans Rugby) has been doing a tremendous job  out of their pockets and voluntary time to uplift the standards of the school rugby team. There is no better testimonial for the ORRFA efforts than the points table.
 
As rajans rugby fans, there is no better time to help rajans rugby than today, lets help these history-making rajans ruggerites through ORRFA.  Please respond (no matter how much).

NOTE: DAANA is merely using it's network and infrastructure to help ORRFA's efforts - we need to help each others efforts, particulalry when ORRFA is supremely capable and experienced to help DRCK boys.
 
Both the collection and credits go to ORRFA, NOT to DAANA.
 
For those North American rajans, DAANA is a US IRS registered 501(C)(3) charity, your donations are tax deductible and may qualify for your employer's gift matching programs. Google permits US 501(C)(3) charities to use Google Checkout to solicit donations online, Thus, we are taking advantage of this facility to raise much needed funds for rajans rugby from voluntary contributions from Rajans Diaspora
