==================================

The Blues Academy are away against Cambridge U22 XV this Saturday.

Bedford make ten changes (two of them positional) to the starting lineup that beat Ealing last week. 

Bedford Blues Academy played their first game since the Christmas break, away to Ealing on their synthetic 3G pitch.  With two last minute changes in the back line, due to an injury in the warm up, and a late arrival, Bedford had to rearrange their back line minutes before the kick off.  Playing up the hill, and against a strong wind in the first half, the Blues turned around at half time down by 22pts – 17.  The second half was a different affair with the Blues scoring 31 unanswered points to win by 48pts – 22.

Congratulations to five Blues Academy players who have been named in the U18 Divisional squads.

Prop Charley Robinson (Bromsgrove School and North Midlands U18s), hooker Garth Spencer (Moulton College and East Midlands U18s) and centre Aaron Martin (Bilton School, Rugby and Warwickshire U18s) have been selected for the Midlands Division U18 squad.  They will join hooker Dan Hostleter (Stowe School and Buckinghamshire U18s) who has been selected for the SE Division U18 squad, and flanker Nick Pritchard (George Abbott School, Guildford and Surrey U18s) who has been selected for the London & SE Division U18 squad. 

The Blues Academy kick off the second half of their season when they travel to play Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday.  The game will be played on Ealing’s new 3G synthetic pitch as a curtain raiser to Ealing 1st XV’s league game with Wharfedale.  Ealing, who were relegated from the Championship at the end of last season, are leading the National One League table and pushing for promotion back to the Championship next season.
