1st XV News

The weather may have played havoc with the Blues recent Championship fixture list so as a special treat we've decided to publish the full head to head interview that featured in the programme against Bristol with Jake Sharp and Don Barrell answering the fans questions.

Ealing Trailfinders’ home Greene King IPA Championship match against Bedford Blues has been rescheduled for Saturday, 15 March, kick-off 15.00.

The Blues were originally supposed to visit Vallis Way on Valentines’ Day, Friday 14 February, but both that match and the previously rescheduled fixture on Saturday 22 February were unable to go ahead after the pitch was deemed unplayable.

England’s final RSB Six Nations match against Italy in Rome will be on the big screen from 12.30, while the concluding fixture of the tournament, France v Ireland in Paris will also be shown, kick-off at 17.00.

For Bedford not to have come away with anything form this game was the biggest disappointment of the afternoon as the Blues went down 19-32 to high flying Bristol.

That said, after the opening half an hour, the Blues were lucky to still be in the game after the visitors had coming firing out the blocks to score three tries which thankfully all went unconverted by Nicky Robinson.

Bedford found their rhythm though with Eoin Sheriff scoring his first Blues try on the 31st minute before impressive youngster Aaron Morris crossed twice to see the Blues leading 19-15 thanks to two Jake Sharp conversions.

Goldington Road is certainly the place to be on Saturday afternoon to ensure that you get your regular rugby fix.

As if the visit of Bristol wasn't enough to attract the Goldingotn Road faithful through the gates, the club will also be showing all of the action from the Six Nations clash between Scotland and England straight after the Championship fixture.

Bedford were thrashed 50-6 at Headingley on Sunday afternoon by Championship high flyers Leeds who ran in six tries. The Blues could not click into gear at all on a chilly Sunday afternoon as their hosts played almost all of the quick flowing and expansive rugby. Errors, poor handling and indiscipline cost Bedford who will want to forget about this game quickly following an upturn in form of late.

They could not cross the whitewash and only had two James Pritchard penalties to show for their afternoon's work.
