Ulster Academy's players relish kitchen battle

Ulster Rugby's Academy players embark on a six-week cooking course at Belfast Metropolitan College which culminates with a Masterchef style cook-off competition.

The initiative involved the Irish Rugby Union Players Association as well as hosts Belfast Met.

"A big part of this was to up-skill them with their creativity and make them more excited about food," said Ulster Rugby's Performance Nutritionist Stephanie Ingram.
