“An army marches on their stomachs”
As Performance Chef, Will Carvalho is in charge of fueling the Gloucester Rugby team players. To Will, the players are like Formula 1 racing cars, they need a well-oiled engine and different players need different fuel. The training and conditioning for each player is intense and Will believes ‘food is mood’ and quality food makes all the difference.
Will has formed a strong bond with the players, he is a support for each one and provides fuel with a side of great advice.
There is constant banter between Will and the players. Will likes to test the players nutritional knowledge – one player believed that almond milk was from cows that ate almonds, which provided a good laugh.
