Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that Northampton Saints will be paying a visit to Goldington Road on Friday 17th March to fill the void in the fixture list following the sad demise of London Welsh.
 
After it was confirmed in January that the Exiles would cease to exist as a professional club after being refused permission to stay in the Greene King IPA Championship, Bedford Blues immediately set about finding a suitable opponent to fulfil the Friday night fixture and they’ve captured one of the biggest teams in the country.  
 

Bedford Blues captain Michael Le Bourgeois was handed a six week ban following an RFU Disciplinary Panel on Wednesday 1st February.
 
Le Bourgeois was charged with making contact with opponents' head following an incident during Saturday's 22-40 home defeat against Doncaster Knights. During a ruck, Le Bourgeois attempted to disrupt the ball but accidently caught a player with his boot in the process.
 
The 26-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge and was handed the six week ban. He is free to play again from Tuesday 14th March.
 

The 2017 RBS Six Nations is underway after a tense opening weekend and looks set to be another close competition with Scotland edging an Ireland side who beat the All Blacks a few months back, England narrowly defeating France in a match which could have gone either way and Italy leading Wales at half-time before crumbling late on.

So where better to take in the international fixtures than on the screens at Goldington Road and supporting your local club.

Next Saturday 11th February it’s the big one as Wales taken on England in Cardiff, and with no fixture for the Blues, it’s the perfect excuse to get back to the home of Bedford rugby.

Bedford Blues were on the receiving end of a 49-26 hiding on Saturday afternoon as bottom side Richmond showed they had more than enough grit and determination to stay in the Championship regardless of relegation no longer being a factor.

For the neutral it was a great afternoon out with 11 tries being scored in total, but for the travelling Blues contingent, it was another frustrating afternoon which started brightly but quickly fizzled out.

Bedford Blues have named their 22 man squad to take on Richmond in the Greene King IPA Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Following last weekend's disappointing 22-40 home defeat to Doncaster Knights, the Blues will be looking to bounce back against Richmond who they defeated 34-14 at Goldington Road back in October.
