Bedford Blues are excited to announce that former Auckland Blues player Baden Kerr has signed a contract with the club until the end of the season.

Kerr, who can play at both fly-half or full-back, made his Super Rugby debut for the Blues against Hurricanes in 2013, as well as representing his club Counties Manakau in the ITM Cup.

Standing at 6ft 3ins and weighing in at around 90kg, the 25-year-old is an imposing figure not just in attack but also defence, adding further size and strength to the Bedford squad.

Bedford Blues return home on Saturday 31st January after a three-week break from their home fortress as they prepare to take on Championship play-off contenders and third placed London Scottish at Goldington Road this weekend (KO 3pm).  

Following a superb start to 2015, winning vital games against Moseley and Doncaster Knights, Bedford experienced their first loss of the year last time out away at Rotherham Titans and will need a sizeable and loud home crowd to cheer them to victory versus a team with lofty Premiership ambitions.

Following defeat away to Rotherham Titans last Saturday, Bedford Blues will be looking to bounce straight back against third placed London Scottish when they come to Goldington Road on Saturday 31st January (Kick Off 3pm).

Looking ahead to the Exiles match, stand-in skipper James Pritchard is searching for further improvements and to replicate a performance similar to that in the second half of the teams’ last meeting at the Richmond Athletic Ground, when the Blues ran in three tries compared to just one from the home side.

Goldington Road will be opening its gates on Wednesday 1st April for the annual Mobbs Memorial Match as Bedford Blues prepare to go to battle against The British Army (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Tickets for the whole event, including an East Midlands XV v Army ‘A’ warm-up fixture are available online here at the cost of just £10 for adults and £2 for children under 16.

Clifton Lane continues to be a thorn in Bedford Blues side as Mike Rayer's men went down 34-19 to Rotherham Titans on Saturday afternoon.

If this is to be the Titans last season at Clifton Lane as reported in their local media then there may be a few who won't miss it given that Bedford haven't won here since 2012.

This game did have everything though. Rain, hail, snow, wind and sunshine. Rotherham got off to a perfect start when the ball was stripped from a Bedford maul and made its way to Rotherham hooker Tom Cruse who was able to gallop up the other end of the pitch to score in the first minute with Barrett converting.
