After the narrowest of wins against Loughborough University U21 XV last week, Bedford Academy take on another University side on Saturday; this time Cambridge University U21 XV.

Bedford again rotate their squad and make ten changes (four of them positional) to the starting lineup that beat Loughborough.

The Blues Academy scraped a narrow win over Loughborough University U21 XV, in monsoon-like weather at Goldington Road on Saturday.  Down by 5pts – 3 at half time, the Blues scored early in the second half to win by 8pts – 5.

The game started, after a One Minute Silence in recognition of Remembrance Sunday, in very heavy rain, which persisted for much of the game. Handling for both sides was extremely difficult, as the ball, like the proverbial bar of soap, skidded around Goldington Road. 

Bedford supporters have the chance to watch the Blues Academy at home on Saturday, when they welcome Loughborough University U21 XV to Goldington Road.  The game is at Goldington Road, with a 2.30 pm Kick Off.  The bar is open, admission is free, and England vs the All Blacks is on TV.

The Academy face the Loughborough students on the back of an impressive three wins in eight days;  against Oxford University U21 XV, Wasps Academy and the RAF U 23 XV.

Bedford again use their squad rotation system and make 8 changes to the starting lineup that beat the RAF U23 XV.
