Bedford Blues have named their team to face Ealing Trailfinders in the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup this weekend.
Ealing have two wins over the Blues in the league this season, but only a single point separated the two teams when they met at Goldington Road at the end of December and Bedford will be looking to turn that deficit into surplus come full time on Saturday evening.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the signing of Ealing Trailfinders lock Oli Curry who will make the move to Goldington Road this summer.
Second-row Curry joined the Trailfinders ahead of the current campaign from Rotherham Titans where he scored one try in 19 appearances for the South Yorkshire side. 

There was an air of Groundhog Day at Goldington Road as Cornish Pirates came a plundering with their Number Eight scoring a hat-trick of tries during a 29-34 win for the visitors.

Almost a year to the day, the Blues and Pirates played out an enthralling 40 all draw down at the Mennaye with Duncan crossing the whitewash three times that afternoon as well.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom for the Blues though as they remain in third place thanks to a late penalty securing a losing bonus point while a Jordan Burns hat-trick and one for Howard Packman sealed the try bonus as well.

Bedford Blues are expecting one of their toughest games of the season when they welcome Cornish Pirates to Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

It'll be third v fourth in the Greene King IPA Championship with both teams enjoying a good run of form. Bedford have won their last five games in all competitions while the Pirates have five wins out of six with the only blot being a B&I Cup quarter-final loss to Ealing Trailfinders.

Encounters between the two sides are always closely contested affairs with the reversal in December going the way of the Cornishmen who won 24-17 with Dean Adamson, Rich Lane and Elliot Clement-Hill scoring for Bedford.

Bedford Blues are thrilled to announce that winger Dean Adamson has signed a new deal to remain at Goldington Road for the 2018/19 Championship season.

To say that Dean has been in sparking form this season would be an understatement as the winger, who turned 25 today, has racked up a superb 16 tries in the Championship alone this campaign as well as helping the Blues reach the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup with six tries.
