A Munster Under 17 combined selection of players from the Regional Development Squad and Munster 'B' Schools recently attended a 11 a-side blitz at Cork Institute of Technology grounds.
This followed a visit from Ruth Wood-Martin, IRFU High Performance Nutritionist, who met with the squads the previous evening to discuss the basic principles of sports nutrition and the benefits of players monitoring their own personal diets for their general well-being.
Ruth will continue to meet the players each week over the camp duration as part of the educational element of the programme.
