Bedford came up short away at London Scottish on Sunday as the hosts fought back to claim a 19-15 victory at the Richmond Athletic Ground. The IPA Championship clash didn’t produce the free flowing rugby expected in the glorious capital sunshine and the Blues were ultimately left to rue missed chances. Despite scores through Patrick Tapley and Brendan Burke, plus a penalty and conversion from James Pritchard, the Exiles punished the Blues’ failed opportunities. James Buckland’s men registered three tries through Adam Kwasnicki, Sam Stuart and Mark Bright, and two conversions for Lee Millar.

RWC 2015 Volunteer Programme

The England 2015 Organising Committee has recently launched 'The Pack' - the volunteer programme for Rugby World Cup 2015.

'The Pack', made up of 6,000 volunteers, will be the faces of the tournament, helping to deliver Rugby World Cup 2015 across England and in Cardiff.

Volunteers will play a key role in the delivery of the six-week tournament with a range of roles, including transport, meet and greet, accreditation and way-finding, and will all vary in duration.

Bedford Blues head to Richmond Athletic Ground on Sunday afternoon fully refreshed and raring to finish the season on a high.

With just three games remaining in the Greene King IPA Championship season, the Blues are looking to put in a trio of good performances before heading into a longer than normal summer break.

Bedford will be without second row duo Mike Howard, who suffered an ankle injury during the Blues last game against Rotherham, and Harry Wells, who is needed by parent club Leicester Tigers this weekend while Mike Le Bourgeois also misses out with an Acromioclavicular Joint injury.

Twickenham beckons as Bedford Blues fans get half-time shot at glory

Bedford Blues fans are being offered a once in a lifetime chance to kick for glory and play for their beloved club at Twickenham, thanks to the title sponsor of the new  Greene King IPA Championship.

The competition will see five lucky winners live out their ultimate rugby moment by each taking a half time kick at goal during the Blues’ home match with Cornish Pirates on 19 April.

Bedford Blues chairman Geoff Irvine has today confirmed that the club's Chief Executive Andy Irvine is leaving his role at the club at the end of the season. Following a meeting this morning (Apr 8) when the staff were informed of the decision, Geoff Irvine said: "Andy has done a fantastic job at Goldington Road over the past eight years but we feel that the time is right to move on to a new challenge and we all wish him well for the future."
