After building a 19pts - 14 lead at half time, playing up the slope, the Blues Academy allowed Cambridge University U21 XV back into the game and lost a tight game by 35pts - 33.  Cambridge showed great character in competing continually and eventually deserved the win.

For a fourth time this season, Bedford Blues were edged out by the smallest of margins as the Cornish Pirates picked up a 16-13 win at the Mennaye Field on Sunday afternoon.

Constant drizzle did nothing to assist either side over the 80 minutes but this was a well fought contest between two pretty evenly matched teams. In the end, it was a single penalty that separated the two.

The match was only minutes old when assistant referee Dino Maddern was forced off with an injury but once the game was underway for a second time it was a full-bloodied contest right up until the last minute.

After good wins in the last two weeks, against Ealing and Nottingham, the Blues Academy face a much tougher challenge against the older Cambridge Univeristy U21 XV, at Goldington Road on Saturday November 9th, Kick Off 2.30pm.

Cambridge, who are preparing for their Varsity game at Twickenham in early December, had good wins recently against Moseley U21 XV and Bath University.  The University side, who will be on average two years older than the Blues, will present a tough physical challenge for  Bedford.

Sunday proved to be another frustrating afternoon for the Bedford Blues players and coaches as a late Matt Jarvis penalty secured the win for Nottingham at Meadow Lane.

Bedford got off to the best possible start when Paul Tupai bundled over from close range but when Joe Munro charged down Brendan Burke's attempted clearance kick to score a couple of minutes later to score, it was always going to be one of those afternoon's.

James Pritchard converted two penalties and Jarvis replied with one of his own to make it 10-11 before Nick Fenton-Wells rounded off a good forwards try with the skipper adding the extras at the interval.
