No one likes a cliché, but it certainly was a game of two halves at Brickfields on Friday night as Bedford came from 13-3 down to win 16-27.

Bedford took an early lead when Mike Le Bourgeois blasted over a penalty after the hosts were penalised at the ruck, but Declan Cusack converted two penalties to put Albion in the lead. With the score at 3-6 and 40 minutes on the clock, everything seemed manageable but a loose pass from Mark Atkinson which went behind the intended target was snapped up by Tom Bowen who scored with Cusack adding the extras.

The Blues Academy face a University U21 XV for the third consecutive week.  After losses to Cambridge and Loughborough Universities U21 XVs in the last two weeks, the Blues face the Oxford University U21 XV this week at Goldington Road, Kick Off at 2.00 pm. 

With the Blues away at Plymouth on Friday, Bedford supporters have the chance to support the Academy at home - Kick Off is 2.00 pm, the bar is open, all are welcome.

At 10 pts all at half time this game could have gone either way.  The Blues started well, but with two players in the sin bin at the same time, the Blues Academy lost their way in the middle of a disjointed game, to lose by 29pts - 15 to the older students side.

It may have been a chilly night but plenty of people turned out for the Armed Forces night at Goldington Road on Friday, but there was little to cheer as the Blues slipped to a 13-26 defeat to Moseley.

After the game, Sam Roberts caught up with Bedford's try scorer Neville Edwards who gave his frank opinion of what the Blues need to do to get back on track. Tom Armes also chatted with Sam to express his views on the game and to give Moseley credit for their performance.

It will be a case of back to the drawing board for Bedford Blues after they suffered a second home defeat of the season going down 13-26 against a revitalised Moseley on Friday evening.

There were 2,545 fans crammed into Goldington Road for the Friday night lights but despite a positive start, the Blues just weren’t able to break down a stubborn Moseley defence who seized their opportunities when they were presented.

Moseley Fly half Caolan Ryan missed a penalty in the third minute after his pack won a penalty on a Bedford scrum and then Jake Sharp pulled an effort just left of the uprights when the visitors were pinged for not releasing a tackle.
