Why water is the ultimate sports drink

As the official health partner with the Tasman Mako, Nelson Marlborough Health wishes all players and coaches a great rugby season. To help you stay top of your game, for all sports, Mako players and local tamariki have made a fun little video about why water is the ultimate sports drink.

With JAB and age-grade rugby season starting in two weeks, make your team a water-only team. Ditch the sugary drinks and fill your own water bottle from the tap. Add some ice or a slice of lemon if you like, and fuel your body like the pros.
