Bedford Blues dug deep and put in a fantastic defensive display as they overcame Nottingham 28-19 at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

Tries from Pat Tapley, Sam Blanchet and Jordan Burns sealed the win, but it was the defence against the Green and Whites that deservedly took the plaudits at full time as the majority of the 2101 fans went home happy.

Playing up the slope in the opening half, the Blues came hurtling out the blocks in fine fashion and were hitting every Nottingham player who attempted to make a break. The pick of the bunch came from Sam Blanchet who flattened Viliami Hakalo and left the Tongan visibly rocked as he got back to his feet.

Bedford Blues return to Goldington Road this weekend for only their second home game of the Championship campaign and they’ll be looking to continue the attacking intent they’ve showed so far this season.

After almost a three week spell away from Goldington Road, Bedford Blues return home this Saturday 3rd October for only their second home Championship fixture of the season against the Green and Whites of Nottingham (Kick Off 3pm).

Following a strong start to the season, only narrowly missing out on the road to both of the capital’s Exiles, spirits in the squad remain high with the players looking forward to a noisy welcome against a side featuring three very recent former Blues having moved to Lady Bay this summer from Bedford.

Bedford Blues put in an almighty shift at Old Deer Park on Saturday afternoon but left South West London with just a losing bonus point after a 30-24 defeat to London Welsh.

Two tries from the impressive George Perkins and one for the evergreen Paul Tupai - who was making his 200th Blues appearance - kept Bedford in touch, but three first half tries had already done the damage.
