BLUES FEATURE IN SKY SPORTS DOUBLE-HEADER

For a second time this season, Blues fans will be able to tune into Sky Sports and watch their favourite rugby team in the comfort of their own home as Bedford take part in the first ever Championship double-header on Easter Sunday.

Sky Sports will broadcast two Greene King IPA Championship games back-to-back involving the league's current top four teams.

The Blues will be taking on Yorkshire Carnegie at Headingley on Sunday 27 March, with the game now kicking off at 4pm. To get everyone in the mood for the main event, the cameras will also be at Castle Park as Doncaster Knights take on leaders Bristol at the earlier time of 1.15pm.

But with five rounds between now and Easter weekend and only eleven points separating the top four, it could all change ahead of the Yorkshire double-header.

Commenting on the fixtures, Head of Rugby Union at Sky Sports Gus Williamson said: "We're delighted to broadcast this Greene King IPA Championship Yorkshire double-header on Easter Sunday, traditionally a very busy weekend for watching sport. With all four of the teams that currently occupy the play-off positions in action, it'll be a great opportunity to showcase the competition.

"I'd like to thank the clubs for their cooperation, and particularly to Doncaster for moving the fixture from Saturday to accommodate Sky Sports, on what will surely be a fantastic day of Championship rugby.”
