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.
