Bedford Blues slipped to a third successive defeat but claimed their first two points of the Championship campaign with two late scores, while a controversial disallowed third gave those of a Scottish persuasion a second nervous wait in two days over the outcome of all matters union, writes James Cunliffe.

This was a top-versus-bottom clash of the rugby variety that, in the first half, looked to be following the form book with Blues rock bottom of the league and pointless prior to kick-off, while Scottish, who had taken maximum points in their first two outings, claimed a bonus point by the half time interval.

In a tough game against the older RAF U23 side the Blues took a half time lead of 14pts – 10, playing up the slope, before scoring five second half tries to win by 45pts – 10.

The Blues Academy are in action at home this week when they welcome the RAF U23 XV to Goldington Road. KO 2.30 pm, Saturday September 20th.  This is the first of two fixtures against the RAF U23 XV the Blues Academy are playing this season, as the RAF prepare for the Inter-Services tournament later this year.

Bedford Blues are pleased to officially announce that this season’s Ladies Day will be held on Saturday 18th October against Welsh side Cross Keys in the British and Irish Cup.

Summer may now be a thing of the past, but as the season and leaves start to change, Goldington Road is preparing to welcome the female population of the region for the Blues’ annual Ladies Day as we attempt to turn Bedford pink.

It was 2007 when the Blues first turned pink to raise funds for breast cancer charities and this year the club will once again be donating to the cause as they invite Bedford's female fans through the gates to help show their support for Cancer Research UK.

New signing and flanker Justin Blanchet has spent the first two Championship matches of the season on the sidelines due to injury, but is itching to be back in contention in the weeks to come with the firm belief that there are exciting things ahead from the recently formed Blues unit.

After tasting defeat for a second time this season, Bedford Blues are attempting to bounce back against current league leaders London Scottish this Saturday at the Athletic Ground (Kick Off 3pm), and Blanchet fully expects an improved performance giving the fact they are gelling together each day and buying into new systems.
