1st XV News

Four brave members of the Bedford Blues squad were put through their paces this week as they were set the task of taking on the Meatcure Chilli Burger Challenge.

The task was quite simple. On Monday night, Tom James, Mike Howard, Pat Tapley and Christian Judge each had to simply work their way through a four patty tower burger, a dozen jalapeno bites, double fries and a milkshake in just 15 minutes.

With the rest of the squad’s encouragement, the foursome got stuck into the challenge wholeheartedly but it proved to be a step too far as none of them could quite complete the task in the time limit set out.

The Blues return to Goldington Road this Saturday for the Christmas fixture against Ealing Trailfinders with both sides still in the running of making the Cup knockout stages going in to the festive double header (KO 3pm).  

Mike Rayer’s men travelled back from Leeds last weekend with nothing to show after an improved performance which deserved at least a losing bonus point. This Saturday the Blues will be looking to respond in front of the home faithful, but will need their 16th man behind them to help them return to winning ways.

Bedford Blues put in a big second half performance at Headingley on Friday night but despite all of their efforts, they left empty handed as Carnegie scored in the seventh minute of stoppage time to secure a 28-15 victory.

The Blues certainly had something to prove after putting in a lack-lustre display at Goldington Road last week but their preparations weren’t helped when they were delayed in getting to the ground.

Bedford Blues will be heading up the M1 on Friday night to face high flying Yorkshire Carnegie in the Greene King IPA Championship.

It's been a Jekyll and Hyde couple of weeks for the Blues who put in a huge performance to pick up a bonus point win at London Welsh a fortnight ago before relinquishing a ten point lead to lose 10-13 at home to London Scottish last weekend.

Have you made your Christmas list? Don't know what to get that one relative who has everything or looking to spoil a Blues supporter? Fear not as the Bedford Blues are on hand to help you out at this very festive time of year from this Saturday.

The Blues have three fantastic Christmas Market dates for you this year as we again rev up the yellow Robin Reliant, donning our favourite Bedford sheepskin coat and head into Bedford Town Centre to set up shop in the bustling market close to M&S on Saturday 3rd December, morning of Wednesday 7th December and all day Wednesday 14th December.
