Congratulations to two ex-Blues Academy players named in the Cambridge University squad for the Varsity game to be played at Twickenham on Thursday December 10th.

Ollie Clough (on left) has been selected at outside centre, alongside Welsh International, and British Lion, Jamie Roberts, and Mike Phillips, also a centre, has been selected on the bench.  

On a blustery day at Goldington Road, the Blues Academy were in the lead for only one second of the game, but it was the final second of the game. 

With strong gusting winds making it difficult for both sides to establish any rhythm neither side could score in the first half.  Both sides were well matched, and found it difficult to break the line.

The Blues Academy welcome Nottingham Academy to Goldington Road on Sunday, KO 2.00 pm.

The Blues continue their policy of squad rotation and make ten changes (two of them positional) to the starting line that beat Oxford University Whippets last weekend.

On a freezing cold day in Oxford, the Blues Academy beat Oxford University Whippets by 25pts – 12 at Iffley Road.

Bedford’s opening score was a simple one, well executed; a scrum, taken against the head, a drive up the middle, two quick rucks and the ball moved quickly to the left for winger Ross Taylor to score.  With the wind against them the Blues scored two penalties to make the half time score 11pts – 0.

The Blues Academy travel to play the Oxford University Whippets side on Saturday, making ten changes (two of them positional) to the starting line that beat the Irish Exiles last weekend.

In the pack, Charley Robinson starts at prop and George Harris at hooker.  Charley Harvey and Kyron Houston start at second row, and Rahat Choudhury and Tom Tucker start in the back row.  In the back line Dylan Leney starts at scrum half, and Tom Jennings on the wing.  Paul Aguele moves to centre and Liam Shileds moves to full back.  The side will be captained by back row Rahat Choudhury.
