The Man Shake join the Knights

Newcastle Knights legend Adam MacDougall is back at his beloved club following the announcement that his company The Man Shake will become an official sponsor of the Newcastle Knights for the 2016 season.

Adam is the first NRL player in history to become a major sponsor of their former club.

The Man Shake branding will be prominent on the top back of each of the Knights’ jerseys, above the player’s number, for the 2016 season.

The Man Shake team will also have a presence at all Knights’ home games during the 2016 season to spread Adam’s message about men’s health and wellbeing.

Since retiring from Rugby League, Adam has become a successful health entrepreneur and best-selling author fuelled by his passion for health and, as he says, “cutting through the industry BS” on his personal mission to help Aussie blokes lead longer, healthier and happier lives.

The two-time premiership winner developed The Man Shake which is the healthiest, lowest sugar meal in a shake on the market. It’s simple, tastes great, and has proven weight loss results with no thinking required.

“Being a player with the Newcastle Knights was one of the best times ofmy life. I love this club, it has played such a huge and meaningful part in my life. I’m proud to be in a position to sponsor the team and I am really looking forward to being back involved with the Knights,” Adam said.

"Our partnership with the Knights this season gives us yet another opportunity to help Aussie blokes improve their health and live their best possible lives"

Newcastle Knights CEO Matthew Gidley said: "We are genuinely thrilled to partner with Adam and it is so pleasing to see a former player build a strong business here in Newcastle for the national market. 

"Adam's products encourage a healthy lifestyle and that aligns well with our Club.

"It is great to have Adam back involved in the Club in this formal capacity and we look forward to teaming up for the season ahead."
