Following a successful training camp in Belfast at the weekend, Bedford welcome the National One side to Goldington Road for their first friendly of pre-season as Director of Rugby Mike Rayer looks to blood the new signings.

Blues Club Doctor, Dr. David Niblett,and Academy physio, Kelly Loftus, put the Blues Academy Coaches through a Medical Training refresher course at Goldington Road, before Academy training this week.

The session covered training on use of the spinal board, which is used to immobilise a player with any suspected neck or spine injury.  This is vital to protect the player from any damage caused by movement until a full assessment can be carried out.
