It's been 17 weeks - that's 119 days, or 2,856 hours, even 171,360 minutes, and an incredible 10,281,600 seconds - since Bedford Blues last took to the field for a game of rugby, so it's fair to say that there is some excitement about this weekend's pre-season fixture against Plymouth Albion.

The game, which kicks off at 3pm on Saturday at Goldington Road, will be Director of Rugby Mike Rayer's first real opportunity to cast his eye over his squad in a competitive match following two months of hard graft on the training field.

Rugby returns to Goldington Road this Saturday for Bedford Blues’ first match of the season against National One promotion hopefuls Plymouth Albion (KO 3pm).

Many of the new Bedford faces will be on display with DoR Mike Rayer expected to name a strong side for a stiff first challenge against the West Country men, now led by former Blue Kieran Hallett.

Whilst the Blues players prepare for their pre-season warm up game against Plymouth this Saturday, one of the Blues Academy Development squad players is hitting the headlines in New Zealand.

Fly Half Dan Lewis, who has been playing for the Valley club in the Citizen’s Shield competition in North Otago this summer, has been getting some good write ups in the local press, ending the season as the competition’s highest points scorer and second highest try scorer.  Valley lost to the Old Boys club on Saturday in the final of the Citizens’ Shield play off competition by 20pts – 13.
