Beer, beer, we want more beer, all the boys are cheering, get the… and on that note it is time to announce the first Rugby and Beer festival taking place at Goldington Road next month.

While there is nothing better than watching Bedford Blues playing rugby, the experience can always be improved and on the weekend of Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March, Blues fans will be able to enjoy top-class rugby alongside some of the finest beers available from our good friends at Charles Wells Brewery.

With the Greene King Championship season reaching the final third, the RFU bring you a summary of a potential defining Round 15 as Bedford Blues continue their hunt for a potential play-off position.

It is Worcester who can confirm their place in the end-of-season play-offs with seven rounds of the regular season to go if they beat fifth-placed Rotherham with a bonus point on Saturday – and ensure the Titans leave Sixways empty-handed, but if the Blues trip Jersey up with a bonus point victory Dean Ryan’s men may have to wait a couple more weeks.

Bedford Blues put the past two results well and truly behind them as they ran in five tries during a 38-8 win over Plymouth Albion on Saturday afternoon.

A brace for Mike Le Bourgeois along with one apiece for Phil Boulton, Steffan Jones and Paul Tupai plus a 100 percent success kicking game from James Pritchard ensured that the Blues faithful went home cold, but with big smiles on their faces as Mike Rayer's men cemented a bonus point win.

Bedford Academy travelled to play their second fixture of the season against Wasps, the RFU funded Premiership Academy, this time on the synthetic pitch at the impressive Maidenhead Rugby Club. 

With Bedford having won the first game narrowly (13–12) at Goldington Road in October, Wasps, who have hit form recently and have beaten Harlequins Academy (29–0) and Bristol Academy (38–9) in the last few weeks, were out to avenge the earlier loss. 

Bedford Blues will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend when Plymouth Albion make the trip to Goldington Road to face Mike Rayer’s men on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).

After a disappointing defeat at the hands of high-flying London Scottish, the Blues know that a resurgent Plymouth Albion – who picked up an impressive home win over Rotherham Titans last weekend – will be looking to continue their recent run of good form and hoping to climb up the Championship table.
