Bedford Blues have named their team to take on Nottingham in the first round of the British & Irish Cup this Sunday at Lady Bay.
 
After six league games, the two teams are evenly matched having won four and lost two and they have an almost identical points for and against record. Games between the two are always hotly contested and much of the same can be expected this weekend.
 

A 34-14 win over Rotherham Titans gave Bedford Blues two victories on the bounce in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The Blues ran in five tries yesterday to give them a bonus point victory, with Dean Adamson and Jordan Burns grabbing a score apiece, before Rich Lane ran in Bedford’s fifth with a superb solo effort.

The game started slowly, with the two sides battling in the midfield and the only real chance of note came in the fourth minute, when Adamson’s kick forward gave the winger something to chase, only for the ball to roll out of bounds.

Tomorrow’s match will also double as the launch of Paul Tupai’s Testimonial Year with a party in the marquee from 6pm with live band, MC Martin Hynes and plenty of fun and games.

Toops’ joined Bedford in 2008 as a fresh faced 32-year-old and has since gone on to play 245 games for the Blues scoring 45 tries in the process, including a memorable hat-trick against the Cornish Pirates in 2014.

Bedford Blues will be looking to make the most of home advantage when Rotherham Titans come to town on Saturday afternoon.

Bedford will be buoyed having overcome Jersey Reds on the road last weekend and now they will be hoping to transfer that winning mentality back to Goldington Road this Saturday.

Looking ahead to the game, Blues Forwards Coach Martin Hynes said: "It may not have been the prettiest of games against Jersey last week but the lads rolled up their sleeves, put in a big shift and came away with four points and you can't ask for much more than that.
