After weeks of disruption due to the weather, and a number of cancelled games, the Blues Academy return to action this Saturday, March 1st, when they welcome the Loughborough University U21 XV to Goldington Road, KO 2.00 pm.

With the Blues away at Moseley, Bedford supporters have the chance to support the Academy at home - Kick Off is 2.00 pm, the bar is open, all are welcome.

This will be the second game against Loughborough University U21s this season, with the Blues losing the game at Loughborough in November by 29pts - 15.

Congratulations to Blues Academy fly half, Dan Lewis, who has been selected for the England U18 Clubs & Schools XV.

Lewis, who is studying for his "A" levels at St. Joseph's College Ipswich, has been selected after captaining the London & S.E. Divisional side in the England trials at the weekend.  He follows in the footsteps of Academy full back Aaron Morris, who was selected for England U18 Clubs & Schools last season, and who has moved on to the Blues 1st XV and the England U20 squad this season.

Bedford Blues have bolstered their second row options with the capture of England Under 20s lock Harry Wells on loan from Leicester Tigers.

The Blues had been dealt a blow with the news that Ben Gulliver could face a number of weeks on the side lines after injuring his neck but have moved swiftly to bring in the 20 year old lock who has been playing at Loughborough before switching to Bedford.

The weather may have played havoc with the Blues recent Championship fixture list so as a special treat we've decided to publish the full head to head interview that featured in the programme against Bristol with Jake Sharp and Don Barrell answering the fans questions. Don't forget that you can post a question to Blues stars by emailing simon@bedfordrugby.co.uk, Tweeting us @BedfordBluesRFC or visiting us on Facebook. Enjoy!

Ealing Trailfinders’ home Greene King IPA Championship match against Bedford Blues has been rescheduled for Saturday, 15 March, kick-off 15.00.

The Blues were originally supposed to visit Vallis Way on Valentines’ Day, Friday 14 February, but both that match and the previously rescheduled fixture on Saturday 22 February were unable to go ahead after the pitch was deemed unplayable.

England’s final RSB Six Nations match against Italy in Rome will be on the big screen from 12.30, while the concluding fixture of the tournament, France v Ireland in Paris will also be shown, kick-off at 17.00.
