Senior Lecturer in Sports Management, University of Portsmouth

My main area of research is elite level rugby union. This research focuses on the professional developments of rugby union since its declaration as a professional sport. At present my research includes investigating the evolutionary process of the game, from its origins through to the moment it became a professional sport and most importantly, the state of the sport in today’s society. My research examines the global effect of professionalisation on rugby union, and particularly the impact on the amateur levels of the game.
