Following a fantastic start to 2015 with a superb triumph over Moseley at Billesley Common, Bedford Blues are looking to continue their New Year success as they prepare for another clash with Doncaster Knights at Goldington Road on Saturday 10th January (KO 3pm).

Bedford ran in three tries against their Midlands’ opponents to secure a vital 15-23 away win, making it 17 tries in the last four outings for Mike Rayer’s men, and this Saturday the Blues are seeking the same fate and to continue that fine form when they face the Knights for a second time in front of a home crowd this season.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that fly half Steffan Jones will be returning to Goldington Road following his involvement with Wales in the HSBC Sevens World Series, and he has now made his loan move a permanent one.
 
Jones, 24, had joined the Blues in the summer on a year long loan move from Newport Gwent Dragons but was recalled by the region in early November before heading off with the National Sevens Team.
 

Bedford Blues ran in three tries to take the spoils 15-23 against their mid-table rivals in their first Championship clash of 2015 writes Bedfordshire on Sunday.

An outstanding defensive display also ensured the home side failed to secure a vital bonus point even though they piled the pressure on in the final stages. But Team Manager Rob Crowle admitted the players were gutted at not taking a bonus point away from the Midlands.

“We are a little bit disappointed that we only scored three tries, we thought we deserved the winning bonus point especially when Michael Le Bourgeois failed to score when he had the line at his mercy," said Crowle.

Bedford Blues will be looking to start 2015 in the best possible fashion when they make the trip to Moseley on Saturday afternoon.
 
While 2014 was certainly a mixed year for the Blues, they will be looking to build on recent performances when they visit Billesley Common for a crunch encounter with Mose.
 
Although Bedford slipped to a 24-28 defeat against league leaders Bristol on Boxing Day, there were clear signs that the Blues had rediscovered some of the form that had made them so dangerous in previous seasons.
 

Following an extremely well fought and close game against title favourites Bristol at Goldington Road on Boxing Day, Bedford Blues fly-half Jake Sharp was left disappointed post-match, but excited about the turn of the year and continuing a rich vein of form against both Moseley and Doncaster Knights at the start of 2015.

The Blues just missed out on victory last Friday despite a fantastic performance which saw the boys run in four tries to walk away with both a try and losing bonus point, but the overriding emotion was one of frustration having led 17-7 at half-time.
