Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this weekend as they welcome high flying Ealing Trailfinders in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The  Blues head into the game looking to build on their impressive display against Rotherham Titans last weekend in which Bedford won their first game of 2017 21-36 thanks to tries from Elliot Clements-Hill, Ollie Dodge, Ben Adams, Jordan Burns and Piers O'Conor.

The task ahead is a huge one though, as Ealing maintain their charge for a top four finish and are yet to taste defeat to Bedford in three games this season thanks to two wins and a draw.

The Blues make three changes to the starting line-up from last weekend with Howard Packman, Billy Walker and Will Carrick-Smith all coming in to the team in place of Pat Tapley, Ben Cooper and Byron Hodge respectively.

Starting Line-up:

15. Elliot Clement-Hill
