After a run of 12 wins stretching back to October, it was unlucky 13 for the Blues Academy away at Loughborough University on Saturday.  With the Blues original opponents, Loughborough University Freshers, playing England Counties U18s in a training game, the Blues faced an older students side with players mainly from the 2nd and 3rd year, who were 2 – 3 years older than the Blues squad.  The Blues took a narrow, but deserved, lead of 10pts - 8 at half time, but performance dropped off in the second half as they went down to a 32pts – 10 loss to the older students side.

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) and the Greene King IPA Championship Clubs have today announced a new five year agreement which will see an uplift in central funding, further strengthening the partnership between the two parties for the continued growth of the second tier.

The RFU will increase its central funding of the competition to include a range of elements, designed to further enhance the second tier of professional rugby.

The Blues Academy take on another older students side this week when they travel to play Loughborough University on Saturday.  With the Blues original opponents, Loughborough Univ Freshers, now playing England Counties U18s in a training game, the Blues will face an older students side with players mainly from the 2nd and 3rd year, who will be 2 – 3 years older than the Blues squad.

Bedford have been leap-frogged in the Championship by Yorkshire Carnegie after a 15-8 defeat in Leeds on Sunday afternoon writes Bedfordshire on Sunday.

Blues drove up north looking for a vital win after just one victory in their last six games, with just one place separating them and Carnegie in the table.

Steffan Jones, Mike Le Bourgeois, Darryl Veenendaal, Paul Tupai and Hayden Thompson-Stringer all returned to the starting fifteen, while Luke Baldwin was named on the replacements bench after re-joining the club on loan from Bristol.
