1st XV News

After pulling on the Blues number seven shirt for the first time in almost a year, Sacha Harding's week got even better when he was invited to player for the Barbarians against the Combined Services in Plymouth next month.

Harding, 30, who suffered a dislocation and break of his ankle during the Championship fixture aganist Leeds on December 2 last year, has been through a long rehabilitation process and completed 50 minutes against Ealing Trailfinders on Sunday afternoon before being replaced by Tom Armes.

The Bedford Rugby Followers Association Fireworks Display is being held this Friday November 1st. and is generally acknowledged to be the best display in this part of the country.

This means we will have a massive clear up job on Saturday morning so we are asking that anyone who can spare an hour or two to please turn up at the ground to give us a hand.

The first team are training at 9am on the main pitch and there is an Academy game vs Nottingham in the afternoon so the main pitch will be the main priority followed by the training pitch and surrounding areas.

Bedford Blues recorded their second win of the season – and the first in the Greene King IPA Championship – as they overcame a determined Ealing Trailfinders side 31-14.

With severe weather warnings on the horizon – and not wanting to quote bedtime stories -  there was plenty of huffing and puffing around Goldington Road but the Blues came out on top with a five try haul which included two apiece for Ollie Dodge and James Pritchard while Mike Le Bourgeois added one into the mix.

Bedford Blues have been rocked by the news that flanker Darren Fox could miss up to three months of the season after breaking his arm during the British & Irish Cup against Llanelli on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the injury, Fox continued playing before having to leave the field with eight minutes remaining on the clock in the Blues first win of the season.

After attending hospital an x-ray revealed a clean break to Fox’s left arm and he underwent surgery earlier this week.

Speaking about the injury, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said:
