1st XV News

Bedford Blues return to Championship action this weekend with the customary trip to Penzance as they face the Cornish Pirates on Sunday afternoon.

Games between the clubs are always hotly contested and league position will mean nothing when the two go head-to-head at the Mennaye Field.

Bedford Blues will have the privilege of hosting the first televised rugby game of 2016 when the Sky cameras come to Goldington Road on New Year’s Day for the Championship fixture against London Scottish.

The game has been moved back to 3.05pm to accommodate the cameras so that’ll give everyone an extra five minutes to recover from any ‘over indulgences’ the night before and make their way to Goldington Road.

Bedford maintained their unbeaten home record this season with an excellent 27-18 win over Ulster ‘A’ which keeps the Blues at the top of British & Irish Cup Pool 2.

Some fantastic running rugby saw Piers O’Conor, Jordan Burns and Steffan Jones all crossing the whitewash while Jake Sharp had an excellent day from the kicking tee as the Blues turned pink for the annual Ladies Day fixture that was attended by a wonderful 2303 fans. 

That’s not to say that the Blues had it all their own way and if Ulster’s Sam Windsor had his kicking radar as finely tuned as Sharp’s, then the result could have been a different one.

Bedford Blues are delighted to show off their fantastic 'Pink' kit ahead of tomorrow's Ladies Day fixture.

Manufactured by Zoo Sports, the special one-off kit will be worn for the clash against Ulster 'A' before being auctioned in the Blues Marquee to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

On top of two-for-one ground entry for all ladies (available on the match day gate only), there will as always be a host of offers available on the day in the Blues Marquee, including:

Bedford Blues will be turning Pink this weekend as they host Ulster ‘A’ in the British & Irish Cup which is also this year’s Ladies Day fixture which kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Coming in off the back of an impressive 35-6 win over Scarlets Select on Sunday, the Blues will be looking to continue the momentum but know they are in for a huge challenge as they face a team that demolished Bristol 30-5 in Belfast last Friday.
