LATEST - Game cancelled by Cambridge:
==================================

The Blues Academy are away against Cambridge U22 XV this Saturday.

Bedford make ten changes (two of them positional) to the starting lineup that beat Ealing last week. 

Last Saturday's brilliant win against Doncaster Knights saw Bedford Blues move into the top half of the Greene King IPA Championship table with further signs of improvement ahead of a testing trip to fifth placed Rotherham Titans this weekend.

The Blues continued their impressive start to 2015 as they overcame a strong Knights side to seal a last minute 35-29 victory with the foundations built on another fantastic set-piece. Two ever-present features on this new front-row powerhouse are Blues forwards Charlie Clare and James Currie who spoke to the official Club website ahead of what promises to be a titanic clash upfront against last season’s Championship semi-finalists.

In just over nine months Rugby World Cup 2015 will come to Milton Keynes, the nearest host venue to Bedford Blues, and they need your help to make the whole event extra special.

In the centre of MK, Campbell Park will host the Fanzone between October 1-11 and there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer at this special event. You can find out more about getting involved at an information event being held from 6.30pm – 8pm on Thursday 15 January at Campbell Park Pavilion. The Parks Trust staff will be on hand to tell you about what’s planned for the Fanzone and to explain the many different volunteering roles that are available.

Bedford Blues maintained their unbeaten start to 2015 but they left it very late to overcome a determined Doncaster Knights side who had led for the majority of the game.

In fact, the winning try came with 15 seconds left on the clock as Jake Sharp found himself out on the right wing to dot down and send the Goldington Road crowd into rapturous applause before James Pritchard tied a bow on the game to convert and make the score 35-29.

Bedford Blues Academy played their first game since the Christmas break, away to Ealing on their synthetic 3G pitch.  With two last minute changes in the back line, due to an injury in the warm up, and a late arrival, Bedford had to rearrange their back line minutes before the kick off.  Playing up the hill, and against a strong wind in the first half, the Blues turned around at half time down by 22pts – 17.  The second half was a different affair with the Blues scoring 31 unanswered points to win by 48pts – 22.
