Tickets for the British & Irish Cup Quarter Final will go on sale on Tuesday morning after it was confirmed that Bedford Blues will meet Jersey on Friday 11th March.

Following a meeting between the competition Organising Committee on Monday 1st February, the draw for the British & Irish Cup knock-out stages was made along with confirmation of the semi-final and final.

While the Blues, who topped Pool 2 of the competition, face Jersey on Friday 11th March with a 7.45pm kick-off, the other fixtures will see Leinster ‘A’ facing London Welsh, Yorkshire Carnegie hosting Moseley and Cornish Pirates being drawn at home against Doncaster Knights.

Bedford Blues put in one of their best performances of the season as they battered London Welsh 64-20 at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon and you can watch all of the highlights by clicking HERE.

Nine tries were scored by the Blues in this comprehensive victory but more pleasing for the Bedford coaches will have been the fact that it was the closest to a full 80 minute performance that there has been all season.
