Just two days after Bedford Blues named five players who will be running up the slope at Goldington Road next season, the club are delighted to be able to double that list.

Paul Tupai and Tom Williams have both agreed new contracts while Myles Dorrian returns on a two year deal and he will be joined by Irish lock Mark Flanagan and talented young prop Jack Culverhouse.

The annual Bedford Blues Touch League will be returning to Biddenham Upper School on Wednesday 6th May and we are looking for extra teams in this exciting revamped competition.

Touch rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK with England even sending teams to the Touch World Cup taking place in Australia at the end of April.

The league, which has been running for fifteen years, has seen many different teams take part from local rugby clubs; Bedford Swifts and Bedford Athletic, to Cranfield University and regulars from the village of Carlton with new teams joining every year.

In this huge year of rugby, Bedford Blues are delighted to bring loyal supporters the chance to get their hands on 2015 QBE Rugby World Cup Warm-Up International tickets against both France and Ireland at Twickenham in August and September (application closing date: Monday 20th April).

This fantastic opportunity, only available for Blues season ticket holders and sponsors, allows rugby fanatics the chance to apply and purchase exclusive tickets for England’s matches against fierce rivals France on Saturday 15th August and Ireland on Saturday 5th September as Stuart Lancaster’s men undertake their final preparations ahead of RWC 2015.

Bedford Blues are pleased to announce the first new signing for the 2015/16 Greene King IPA Championship season along with four members of the current squad who have put pen to paper on new deals.

Bedford Blues fullback James Pritchard will join England’s Chris Jones and international players from Argentina, Fiji, Namibia and the USA in the Barbarians squad taking on Heriot’s next week to celebrate the Edinburgh club’s 125th anniversary.
