In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University and Research & Innovation Manager at the RLF, Ben Jones. Over the last 18 months, Ben and I have become good friends and I was so pleased to get on a guy who is so busy with 3 jobs. Along with the 2 jobs listed above, Ben is Head of Academy Sports Science, S&C & Research at Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby Club…

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Ben Jones (background, education & current role[s])
  • How academia and pro sport can work together
  • How Leeds Beckett works closely with Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie
  • Who is currently and who should be guiding research
  • The research cycle and how the practitioner can be involved
