Bedford Blues will be looking for some festive cheer on Saturday afternoon as they head to the Richmond Athletic Ground to face London Scottish in the GreeneKing IPA Championship.

As the second half of the season gets underway, the battle hardened Blues are looking forward to getting back to League action after two really physical encounters versus Munster ‘A’ in the B & I Cup.

When the Blues welcomed the Exiles to Goldington Road in Round Two of the competition, Bedford ran in six tries to pick up a 44-26 win but Scottish fought back towards the end of the game to pick up a four try bonus point.

February brings a cerebral challenge to Goldington Road with the return of Jackie Markham's BRFA General Knowledge Quiz in the Scrum Hall.

Set a date in your diary for Friday 2nd February 2018 as the Blues players enjoy a break weekend from action.

Doors to the Scrum Hall are open at 7pm with the quiz starting at 7:30pm, so be there early to secure your table and get the drinks in before the eggheads get to work.

Teams can be up to six people, but if you don't have a team come along and we'll join you with some like-minded supporters.

Bedford Blues were pleased to present a record breaking cheque of £7,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support at last weekend’s match following yet another fantastic Ladies Day on Saturday 21st October.

The Blues certainly made Ladies Day 2017 a day to remember on the field with a staggering 43-19 win over Ospreys, but the club are equally proud of a cause much bigger than rugby.

Supporters raised the staggering amount for the club’s new Cancer Charity Partner Macmillan through raffles, auctions and collections at the club’s tenth Ladies Day event.

There was to be very little Christmas cheer at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as Munster ‘A’ gate crashed the party with a 12-16 win in the British & Irish Cup.

A week after the Blues had defeated the Irish outfit in Cork, the men in red put in a solid defensive display and finished their chances to keep the Pool wide open with two games left to play.

Bedford did cross the whitewash twice with good scores from Dean Adamson and Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, but a try from prop Ciaran Parker and the boot of Bill Johnston ensured that Munster ‘A’ returned home happy.

Bedford Blues have named their 22 man squad for the festive fixture against Munster 'A' in the British & Irish Cup this weekend.

After the 14-25 win at Irish Independent Park last Friday, the Blues make five changes to the starting line-up with four coming in the forwards and one in the backs.

The most noteable change is a starting place for Bedford stalwart Paul Tupai who will be making his 250th appearance for the Blues. Toops - who is celebrating his testimonial year - starts at blindside flanker and joins an illustrious band of players to achieve the impressive number of Bedford caps.
