I think that it would be fair to say that Lieutenant Colonel Edgar Mobbs would have been truly thrilled with the rugby on display at Goldington Road on Tuesday night as Bedford Blues defeated the Army 55-26 in the memorial game which commemorated the 100th anniversary of his death.

There were 13 tries scored during an enthralling 80 minutes of rugby with nine going the way of the Blues - including a hat-trick for debutant Blues Development winger Ryan Hutler - and four for the Army who battled until the final minute.

Bedford Blues have named their team to take on the British Army in the Mobbs Memorial game which kicks-off at 7.45pm at Goldington Road tomorrow night.

First played in 1921, the Mobbs Memorial game honours Lieutenant Colonel Edgar Mobbs DSO, a true England rugby legend and a genuine hero of World War I. Formerly competed between the East Midlands and the Barbarians, the game now pits the British Army against Bedford Blues and Northampton Saints on alternate years and this year the match - which also marks the 100th anniversary of Mobbs' death - falls on Blues’ turf.

Bedford Blues put in one of their most clinical performances of the season as they ran in seven tries against London Scottish at Richmond Athletic Ground on Saturday afternoon.

A brace each for Dean Adamson and Jordan Burns along with a try each for Pat Tapley, Dan George and Piers O’Conor ensured the Blues left the Capital with a maximum haul.

While the finishing would have pleased the Blues faithful, the coaching team would have been pleased with the manner in which Bedford continually soaked up pressure from the Exiles before punishing them on the break.

Bedford Blues return to Championship action this weekend with the always tricky trip to the Capital to face London Scottish at 2pm on Saturday.

While the Blues did not have a league game last week due to London Welsh's departure from the Championship, Bedford were in action as they took on Northampton Saints in an enthralling encounter at Goldington Road. While the game ended with a 17-52 win for the Saints, there were plenty of positives for the Blues to take into this weekend's fixture.

Bedford Blues are pleased to launch their End of Season Gala Dinner in the marquee at Goldington Road on Friday 5th May.

There is limited availability for this much-anticipated event with the Blues players, coaches and special guests as we mark the end of another Championship season with a memorable night of entertainment.

Open to both male and female, this year’s black tie gala dinner promises to be another fantastic evening for all in attendance with a superb four course dinner and awards presentation, as well as AV displays with match highlights.
