Player Profile: 

It's been a glorious return to Goldington Road for second row star Alex Rae who rejoined the club after leaving his role as Assistant Coach with Jersey at the end of last season.

Rae, who originally joined Bedford in 2009 from Northampton Saints having come through the Worcester Warriors Academy, was a key component of the Blues' scrum before moving onto Wasps in 2013 and subsequently Jersey.

During his time with the Islanders, Rae skippered the team for three campaigns before taking up a role as assistant coach which also saw him nominated for the Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year 2016.

Speaking about Rae's return, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: "As soon as we heard that Alex was returning to England from Jersey, I began making enquiries about his availability. We know Alex very well from the four years that he spent with us and although he has primarily been a coach this season, he was keen to get back out on the field.

"Alex is a natural leader on the field and I'm delighted that he will be back in the Blues scrum, directing traffic and giving his all for Bedford."
