Oban international rugby star Magnus Bradbury is set to compete in an oriental cook-off hosted by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) at the 179th Royal Highland Show on Saturday.

In a nod to the upcoming Rugby World Cup in Japan later this year, back-row man Bradbury and prop Simon Berghan will take part in a ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’ style challenge where they will go head-to-head creating delicious dishes using an array of Japanese ingredients as well as Scotch Beef PGI.

The duo will take on the challenge at the QMS stand, where they will also discuss their experience playing for Scotland, how they maintain a healthy diet and their training regimen ahead of this year’s Summer Tests.

Earlier this year, Scotch Beef was announced as the Official Healthy Eating Partner of Scottish Rugby.

As part of the partnership, QMS will continue to deliver a wide range of activities with Scottish Rugby over this year.

Carol McLaren, Director of Marketing and Communications said: ‘We can’t wait to see some friendly competition between Magnus and Simon as they cook up some great dishes inspired by the Scotland team’s important upcoming games in Japan this year.’

To see the boys in action, head to stand 555 Avenue O in the main ring on Saturday June 22 at 1.15-2.15pm. Rugby fans will also be able to catch a glimpse of the Calcutta Cup which will be at the stand from 12.45-2.15pm.
