Chris Easton, the Blues Academy captain, has been selected to be one of 30 players to attend a training session with Graham Rowntree (England Forwards Coach) and Mike Catt (England Attacking Skills Coach), at Twickenham next week.

The day includes a welcome briefing at Twickenham Stadium, home of England Rugby, before the training session, followed by a Q&A session with Graham Rowntree and Mike Catt in the England team changing room at Twickenham.

The Blues Academy ended their season by winning the inaugural Bedford Blues Under 19 10-a-side tournament at Goldington Road.

The competition was designed to showcase the player development work being carried out by a number of Championship clubs as well as giving the players a competitive focus to end the season.

With eight sides participating in two pools of four, there was non-stop rugby all day. 

The Blues Academy ended their 15-a-side season with a narrow 27pts – 24 victory away from home over London Scottish.  In a game where some of the refereeing interpretations made it difficult for both sides to establish any continuity the Blues led by 15pts – 10 at half time.  Turning around to face the strong wind in the second half Bedford went on to win by 27pts – 24.

The Blues Academy play their final 15-a-side game of the season when they travel to Richmond to play London Scottish Academy.  The game is at The Athletic Ground, Kew Foot Road, Richmond, TW9 2SS and Kick Off is 2.00 pm.

With players returning from injury the Blues make seven changes to their starting lineup and give debuts to four new players on the bench.
