A belated congratulations to ex-Blues Academy Captain Ali Price, who won his first cap last Saturday in Scotland’s 43-16 win over Georgia.  Ali, whi has been on the bench for Scotland's last three games, came off the bench to replace the Scotland captain, Greg Laidlaw, at scrum half, and win his first cap.

Ex-Blues Academy Captain Ali Price, who has been named in the Scotland Squad, is poised to win his first full Scotland cap if he makes his debut off the bench against Argentina.  Price, has been named in the Scotland Squad to face Argentina at Murrayfield on Saturday Nov 19th. 

Ali was on the bench for Scotland last week in their narrow loss to Australia (23-22), but did not come off the bench to win his first cap.

Congratulations to ex-Blues Academy Captain Ali Price, who has been named in the Scotland Squad to face Australia at Murrayfield on Saturday Nov 12th.  Price will gain his first full Scotland cap if he makes his debut off the bench.

Price was born in Kings Lynn, attended Wisbech School, and joined the Blues Academy in 2010.  He was in the Blues team which won the National U19 Knock Out cup, scoring twice in the 38pts – 10 win over Redingensians in May 2011, and wining the Academy “Young Player of the Year” award.  He went on to captain the Blues Academy squad in 2011/12 season lifting the National U19 Knock Out cup in the 31pts - 15 win over Ivybridge in May 2012. 

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that five further players have joined the Blues Academy Development Squad.

The Blues announced recently a new approach to developing young players for a future in the professional game with the set-up of the Academy Development Squad.  These players will train as part of the Blues first team squad with their Strength & Conditioning programmes being overseen by the Blues first team coaches.  If they are not playing for the Blues, then they will play with a partner club in the National Leagues where they will have the opportunity to develop by playing regular adult league rugby.
