Bedford Blues head north this weekend as they travel to Castle Park to take on Doncaster Knights in the Greene King IPA Championship.
 
A hugely attritional game against London Irish last weekend saw the Blues hitting form, but ultimately they fell just short against the former Premiership side as they went down 23-30.

It will be a busy October at Goldington Road with Bedford Blues hosting three home games back to back including newly promoted Richmond next up, before Friday night lights v Rotherham Titans and the annual Ladies Day fixture on Saturday 15th against Newport Gwent Dragons.

Last season’s National One title winners, Richmond, arrive in Bedford on Saturday 1st October in a match Mike Rayer’s men will certainly be targeting on home soil having performed impressively versus London Irish last time out.

The Bedford Blues Community Rugby Department is delighted to announce that their second rugby camp will be taking place in the October half term holiday and will also include a kicking master class from Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer.

The rugby camp is open to players of all ages and abilities with boys and girls being welcomed to the sessions which take place over three and a half days at Goldington Road – the home of Bedford Blues.

Bedford Blues gave a superb account of themselves against former Premiership side London Irish during an enthralling encounter at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

While the Blues ultimately went down 23-30, there were plenty of positives to take from this performance that could easily have swung the Blues way in the latter stages. 

Speaking after the encounter, Pat Tapley, who scored two tries, said: “While it is really pleasing for me to come back into the team and score two tries, ultimately we are disappointed with the score line as it goes down as a defeat when it felt like we deserved more.

Bedford Blues return to action at Goldington Road this weekend knowing that nothing but the best will do when London Irish pay a visit.
 
A much improved performance against Jersey in St Peter last weekend saw the Blues come within a few inches of victory and now the team have the sizeable task of taking on the former Premiership team on their home patch.
