Muscle Science will award one lucky rugby player with a bursary to the Sharks Academy for 2013, announced Ian Wright, Brand Manager of Muscle Science, at a function at Kings Park Stadium on Friday 27 January.

At the annual Sharks Academy opening function, hosted by Hans Scriba – Head of The Sharks Academy, he said “Muscle Science is a long-standing sponsor of the Sharks Academy, and their support is invaluable to our players,”. “This bursary will give a talented rugby player the chance to study at the Sharks Academy and further their rugby career.”

The Muscle Science bursary will be awarded to a player who has entered the national competition and has been accepted on merit to the Sharks Academy. The prize will cover the tuition fees for the lucky winner. Ian Wright, Muscle Science also highlighted the importance of nutrition for athletes in conditioning and recovery as well as in rehabilitation for injured players. “There can be no doubt that sports nutrition is an essential component of any athlete’s regimen. Athletes require significant amounts of protein, carbohydrates and vitamins to perform optimally. Any athlete, whether amateur or professional, needs a diet which is formulated specifically to cater for the demands that strenuous exercise places on the human body, and high quality sports supplements are an extremely efficient way to achieve this .”

Muscle Science and the Academy have announced this bursary early, to give rugby players who wish to apply several months to get into peak condition and secure their place at the Sharks Academy. Full details of the bursary will be available on the Muscle Science website from 2 February 2012.
Applications for the Muscle Science bursary should be made online at

  • @beet (Comment 3) : ha ha mate… as said, you need to qualify on your own merits… in other words, if you’re not good enough to get into the elite squad on your own, this isn’t going to help you 🙂
