Leading sports nutrition brand Nutrition X has partnered up with London Irish ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Recognised as the leading choice of sports nutrition for many elite athletes and professional sports teams across the world, Nutrition X will work closely with the club’s strength and conditioning team to provide ongoing sports supplement support as well as establishing the nutritional requirements of each player.

Supplements set to be used include maximum recovery matrix formula (MRM), vital for assisting with post-match muscle recovery. Former London Irish player James Hudson, who is now a performance nutritionist at Nutrition X, will also host a series of performance nutrition-focussed seminars for players throughout the season.

London Irish strength and conditioning coach Rob Palmer said: “I’m delighted that we’ve partnered with Nutrition X and I’m looking forward to working with them throughout pre-season and beyond. To be working with a well renowned brand such as Nutrition X is massive for the club and it will be great to work with former player James Hudson, who is now a key figure of their business.”

“To be working with London Irish for the first time this year is a really proud moment for us,” said Nutrition X managing director James Markey.

“London Irish is a fantastic club with incredibly skilled players and a real passion for rugby. We’ll be working closely with the team there to help each of the players boost their performance through targeted nutritional support, not only through our supplements, but with ongoing expert support from James Hudson through our newly-formed sports nutrition consultancy.

“We’re all really looking forward to seeing how the lads get on this season and wish them all the best of luck!”
