Bedford Blues and Ampthill Rugby Club teamed up at Goldington Road on Tuesday night for a joint forwards training session ahead of a busy weekend for both teams.

With the Blues hosting Plymouth Albion in the Greene King IPA Championship on Saturday afternoon and Ampthill making the journey to Bristol looking to maintain their promotion push as they face the always difficult Dings Crusaders, this was an excellent opportunity to get some 'live' contact training under the belts of each pack.

Dear Supporter,

Rugby World Cup, England 2015 tickets.

Bedford Blues are expecting to be allocated a total in excess of 500 tickets for the key matches at Rugby World Cup 2015.  Demand is anticipated to be very high and this represents the best opportunity for true rugby fans to purchase tickets for England & Knock Out stage matches.

To apply you must have purchased an Adult season ticket for 2014-15 season before 30th April 2014 and returned along with completed RWC 2015 ballot application.

We are looking to strengthen our Academy coaching team for next season.  If you are a coach who wants to be part of what is probably the best non-RFU funded Academy in England ..... then we would like to hear from you. 

The Blues Academy was set up to identify, recruit and develop professional players for the Bedford 1st XV of the future.  The Academy has a great record in producing players for the Blues 1st XV, with players such as Sacha Harding, Will Chudley, Chris Locke, Darryl Veenendaal, Duncan Taylor, Josh Bassett and most recently Aaron Morris coming through the Academy to the Blues 1st XV.

If you are a coach who:

Bedford slipped to their 11th defeat of their unhappy Championship season and lost at Billesley Common for the first time in nearly eight years.  Not since September 2006 have Blues left Birmingham without the spoils but in truth they were never in control of the game.

Tries from Paul Tupai and Pat Tapley were all they had to show for their efforts against a redoubtable home team that has not lost at Billesley Common in three months.  The Moseley scrum set their stall out early as Nic Auterac and Phil Boulton struggled for parity and even though the Blues mauling game was good, it wasn’t decisive.

After weeks of disruption due to the weather, and a number of cancelled games, the Blues Academy returned to action with a well deserved win against the Loughborough University U21 XV.  Bedford built a 22pts - 7 lead playing up the slope in the first half.  The students raised the tempo in the second half to score two further tries but the Blues matched them with two of their own to end as winners by 32pts - 17.
