Bedford Blues have named their team to head to Hartpury on Saturday afternoon in the final pool game of the Championship Cup.

Last weekend's bonus point win over Cornish Pirates ensured that the Blues have qualified for the knockout stages, but Mike Rayer's men won't be taking their foot off the gas as they look to build once again.

A minor injury crisis has left the Blues in short supply of props, but knights in shining armour Ampthill have come to the rescue by loaning former Blue Jack Culverhouse back to the club for this weekend's fixture which sees a number of changes to the starting line-up.

This Wednesday 12th December and the following Wednesday 19th December, we will be running our annual Christmas Market Stall in Bedford Town Centre.

Bedford Blues hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Championship Cup were given a boost when they picked up a bonus point win over the Cornish Pirates on Saturday afternoon.

Two tries for Dean Adamson and one each from Ed Coulson and Pat Tapley secured the important bonus point, but a final flurry from the Pirates made for a squeaky finish as they scored three tries in eight minutes but ran out of time for the most unlikeliest of comebacks as the Blues held on to win 27-17.

Match reaction from Will Hooley and all the scores can be seen here.
