Rugby's Gold Standard

Rugby's Gold Standard
By Team ON Editor 2 years ago 11172 Views

Leinster Rugby and Saracens may be arch rivals on the European rugby stage, but the reigning Champions Cup and Pro 14 winners Leinster and the English Premiership champions Saracens share one key success factor. Optimum Nutrition is Official Sport Nutrition Partner to both clubs and has been providing performance nutrition support to Leinster since 2010 and to Saracens from 2012.

In that time the Clubs have dominated Europe and domestic leagues notching up five European titles and six league wins and bagging the Champions Cup, Pro 14 and Premiership trophies this season between them.


Due to the intense nature of training, a rugby player has a significantly higher protein requirement to meet their body’s maintenance and recovery needs.

With an average daily protein intake of 210g, equating to 6 - 7 chicken breasts - Leinster and Saracens players can enjoy up to 2-3 GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY Protein shakes on training days, before and after a session to help repair and rebuild their muscles.

Their tailored nutritional programmes can also include GOLD STANDARD 100% CASEIN for overnight recovery, Creatine to help with strength and performance as well as ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY, GOLD STANDARD GAINER, GOLD STANDARD BCAA and Protein Whipped Bites. GPN also works closely with their Nutritionists and has developed bespoke products for partner clubs such as an “Elite Recovery” delivering the optimum level of protein and carbohydrates.
