BLUES TO FACE SCARLETS

Bedford Blues can now confirm that their third and final pre-season friendly ahead of the Greene King IPA Championship season will be against Pro 12 side Scarlets at Llandovery RFC.

Having already announced encounters against Ampthill, Old Albanians and Plymouth Albion, Mike Rayer’s men will head on their travels once again to Llandovery Rugby Club to face Welsh giants the Scarlets on Saturday 29th August at 2.30pm.  The Welsh region finished sixth in this season's Pro 12 to qualify for the European Challenge Cup, and will prove a stern test for the Blues ahead of the Championship season opener.
