Bedford Blues British & Irish Cup campaign fizzled out on Saturday afternoon as they went down 15-12 to the Dragons Premiership Select XV.

A disruptive afternoon saw the game being shifted from Bridge Field to the Dragons' Ystrad Mynach training ground as the pitch had frozen with kick off being delayed to 4.30pm.

A chilly evening saw teh youthful Dragons starting well and they went 5-0 up when hooker Ellis Shipp was driven over the whitewash before Arwel Robson extended the lead with a well taken penalty.

Bedford sprung into life and a superb break set up Pat Tapley to cross the line but the extras went begging.

Bedford Blues Community are delighted to announce another three-day rugby camp in February Half-Term on the 14th, 15th and 16th of next month with a special early bird and late leaver offer via our new community booking portal.

It’s all go in the community team with a host of camps set up for the coming holidays, the first of which this February will deliver a hands-on rugby experience again at Goldington Road.

Bedford's chances of reaching the quarter finals of the British & Irish Cup came to an end on Saturday afternoon as they went down 12-29 to Yorkshire Carnegie.

Tries from Ollie Dodge and Tom Whiteley did give Bedford hope in the second half, but the visitors had been clinical in finishing their chances and were tough to break down.

Bedford Blues are disappointed to announce that centre Tom Farrell has left the club to join Pro 12 side Connacht with immediate effect.

Farrell, 22, has made 12 appearances for the Goldington Road club since joining in the summer from London Irish with his last being against his former club.

Well what a 2016 it has been! It kicked off with a 31-19 home win against London Scottish in the Championship, included a huge 64-20 victory over London Welsh, we saw 100 points being scored in an enthralling game with Cornish Pirates and had plenty of thrills and spills along the way. Simon Hutchinson takes a look back at his three highlights from the year just gone.
