The Blues Academy welcome Leicester Tigers Academy to Goldington Road on Sunday, KO 12 noon.

With a spate of injuries to cope with the Blues make five changes to the starting lineup and give debuts to four new players on the bench. 

Bedford Blues travel to Ashton Gate on Sunday afternoon with Director of Rugby Mike Rayer challenging his players to put in a strong performance against table-topping Bristol.

The two teams met on Boxing Day at Goldington Road when the Blues went into the break leading 17-7 thanks to tries from James Pritchard, Harry Wells and Dean Adamson only for the visitors to regroup during the interval to finally run out 24-28 winners - Pat Tapley added the Blues fourth try which secured two bonus points.

Bedford Blues will be looking to bounce back this weekend in a sizeable task against top of the table Bristol Rugby at Ashton Gate on Sunday (Kick Off 3pm).

Looking ahead to the reverse fixture of Boxing Day at Goldington Road, Blues centre Michael Le Bourgeois believes composure and taking the game to the league leaders will be key in gaining a result from Bristol.

Le Bourgeois said: “Every game counts, it’s not one that we can let slip so we will take the game to them - they’re top of the league for a reason so both teams will be trying to play, but we have to keep our composure.” 

The draw for the Bedford Blues Under 19s 10-a-Side Tournament was completed on Friday night ahead of the Blues game against Cornish Pirates.
 
The draw, which was made by Ian Connell, Chairman of Cornish Pirates, and Ian Baggott, President of the East Midlands Referees Society, has determined which teams go into each Pool for the inaugural tournament which takes place on Sunday 26th April at Goldington Road.
 

Bedford Blues suffered a Cornish Pirates plundering as the West Countrymen took a 21-31 bonus point win from their visit to Goldington Road on Friday evening.

Despite scoring three very well worked tries of their own, the Blues were always playing catch-up after the visitors scored twice in the opening eight minutes before crossing the whitewash just before the break and two minutes from full-time as the set-piece failed to function against a powerful Pirates pack.

As the Greene King IPA Championship season enters its final few rounds, Bedford Blues return to action with a Friday night fixture against the Cornish Pirates.
 
This will be the third clash between the two sides this season with each result so far going the way of the home team and Bedford will be hoping for much of the same on Friday night but know that they will have to be at their best to overcome a strong Pirates squad.
 

Friday night lights return to Goldington Road this Friday 20th March with an added mini beer festival in the Blues Marquee as Mike Rayer’s men prepare to face Cornish Pirates for the fourth time this season (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Following defeat against Yorkshire Carnegie last time out, the Blues will be hoping to bounce straight back against the West Country outfit, who will be looking to even the tables having lost two of the three encounters against Bedford this season.

Celebrate the start of another rugby season in style with the Bedford Rugby Followers’ Association at their annual Summer Ball on Saturday 25th July in the Blues Marquee.

A fun filled night at Goldington Road is guaranteed for all with a black tie dinner and dance, as well as the chance to get your hands on some great prizes through the Followers’ raffle, auction and games.

Following a narrow 15-8 defeat to Yorkshire Carnegie last time out, Blues playmaker Steffan Jones believes correcting basic errors and confidence amongst the team are both vital components in exacting victory over Cornish Pirates at Goldington Road this Friday 20th March (KO 19:45).

The former Newport Gwent Dragons player said: “The mood in the changing rooms after last week’s game was one of disappointment. We didn’t take our chances when they presented themselves while Carnegie took their opportunities well. We were disappointed with the result because we knew that we could, and should, have done better.
