The Centre undertook an economic impact assessment of the 2009 Northern Rail Blackpool 9s tournament. Project Director Rhodri Thomas, working with colleague Nicola McCullough, were delighted with positive feedback from those who commissioned the work (the Rugby Football League). As Rhodri noted: 'it's gratifying when our research reports are considered useful. We are looking forward to doing a follow-on study for the RFL'.
