With a list of injuries and availability issues the Blues make 11 changes (two of them positional) to the starting line that played Wasps last week. 

The Blues Academy lost to the RFU funded Wasps Academy by 34pts – 17 at Maidenhead on Friday night.  After gifting Wasps three tries in the first half to go down 19pts – 3 at half time, Bedford improved their performance to score a couple of good tries in the second half but Wasps scored a good try in the opening and closing minutes of the half to end as deserved winners by 34pts – 17.

Bedford make six changes to their starting lineup (one positional) with hooker George Harris, prop Henry Peck, centre Harry Hutchins, and full back Max Titchener returning with Liam Shields moving to centre.  No. 8 Harry Peterkin (Oaklands College) makes his debut. 

Hoping to make their debuts off the bench are St Columba's College hooker Tom Kelly and Wymondham winger Charlie Blower. The side will be captained by prop Charley Robinson.
