Dannevirke High School is affiliated to the Hawkes Bay Rugby Union however, we play our Rugby in the Manawatu Competition travelling as far afield as Masterton, Levin and Wanganui.  

Home games are played either and Dannevirke High School or Dannevirke Rugby Park.  Due to coaches work commitments most teams train at Rugby Park where there is lighting.  

Subscriptions are $80.00 per player or $110.00 per family plus each player is to pay $50.00 travel fee or each  member is to attend an arranged working bee.

All outstanding subscriptions must be paid by the end of the sporting year to enable eligibility to play in future years. Subscriptions must be paid within one month or payment arrangements set up with Mrs Mary Mitchell, the Finance and Administration Manager. 

Please familiarize yourself with NAG 1
