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.

Bedford Blues will have the privilege of hosting the first televised rugby game of 2016 when the Sky cameras come to Goldington Road on New Year’s Day for the Championship fixture against London Scottish.

The game has been moved back to 3.05pm to accommodate the cameras so that’ll give everyone an extra five minutes to recover from any ‘over indulgences’ the night before and make their way to Goldington Road.

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.

Bedford maintained their unbeaten home record this season with an excellent 27-18 win over Ulster ‘A’ which keeps the Blues at the top of British & Irish Cup Pool 2.

Some fantastic running rugby saw Piers O’Conor, Jordan Burns and Steffan Jones all crossing the whitewash while Jake Sharp had an excellent day from the kicking tee as the Blues turned pink for the annual Ladies Day fixture that was attended by a wonderful 2303 fans. 

That’s not to say that the Blues had it all their own way and if Ulster’s Sam Windsor had his kicking radar as finely tuned as Sharp’s, then the result could have been a different one.

Bedford Blues are delighted to show off their fantastic 'Pink' kit ahead of tomorrow's Ladies Day fixture.

Manufactured by Zoo Sports, the special one-off kit will be worn for the clash against Ulster 'A' before being auctioned in the Blues Marquee to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

On top of two-for-one ground entry for all ladies (available on the match day gate only), there will as always be a host of offers available on the day in the Blues Marquee, including:
