The RAF have had to cancel Saturday's game between Bedford Academy and the RAF U23 XV due to player availability. 

The Scrum Bar is open and the Rugby World Cup is on TV all day;  Italy v Canada (14:00), South Africa v Samoa (16:45) and England v Wales (20:00).

The Blues Academy welcome the RAF U23 XV to Goldington Road on Saturday – KO 2.00 pm.  Making their debuts for the Blues Academy in the starting lineup are ex-Millfield School prop, Henry Peck, Wotton School flanker, Tim Herbert, and ex-St.Joseph’s College Ipswich wing, Ross Taylor.  Hoping to make their debuts off the bench are ex-Junior Blue 2nd row, Kyron Houston, and Portugal U18 international Jose Fernandes.  The side will be captained by centre Aaron Martin.


Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said: “It took us until after half time against Moseley in our last game, to pull together some decent phases.  Our squad are all 17 or 18 years old, so the RAF Under 23 XV will present a real tough physical challenge.  We will need to be on our top form for the whole game to compete with them.  We are missing a few players but this gives a chance to some of our younger guys.”


The game against RAF U23 is at Goldington Road, at 2.00 pm.  All are welcome, the scrum bar is open and World Cup Rugby is on TV all day;  Italy v Canada (14:00), South Africa v Samoa (16:45) and England v Wales (20:00)
