Galveston rugby gets new sponsor for 2016/17
Galveston rugby is getting geared up for the 2016/17 season! Pre-season training starts soon and everyone should be getting fit before training gets going. Today though, we’d like to take a moment to introduce a new sponsor for the club. Before we tell you about them, please take a second to look at our current sponsors. These organizations have been with us for years and your support for them gives them a reason to support us.
Nutrition for Rugby
Ruck Science is a sports nutrition company based in Austin, TX. It company was started by a group of rugby players who were apparently sick of buying supplements designed for bodybuilders. We all know that rugby is different and as such, their nutritional supplements were created to help rugby players perform and recover better. Tim and his team at Ruck Science don’t sell to soccer players, marathoners or swimmers, they just do nutrition for rugby.
Ruck Science believes in keeping rugby clean. None of their products contain ingredients that are on the WADA’s banned substances list. So you can fairly safely guarantee that what you’re putting in your body is good for you when you get it from these guys. They also provide batch test results upon request. If anyone at Galveston has tried these supplements before, could you please confirm this by checking the company’s ingredients and reporting back?
Before you purchase from ruckscience.com
There are four things to keep in mind if you want to try their products and compare them to other supplement manufacturers:
- They’ve just launched rewards program. So be sure to register for it before you make your first purchase. You get rewarded for referrals, reviews and every purchase you make.
- Their new supplement sample stack looks pretty clutch and includes a carrying case for your supps. Pretty unique product and good value for $19.95 even if you decide not to buy from them in the future.
- Most importantly MAKE SURE TO ENTER “Galveston RFC” as the rugby club you play for so they can send the club its donation.
- If you’re in training mode take a gander at their library of training resources – they have a whole section of free rugby downloads.
If you’ve used any Ruck Science products and have feedback, either positive or negative, please share it with with other players so that we all know what we’re getting into with these guys.
