Bedford Blues kicked off the New Year with a bonus point victory over London Scottish in front of Sky Sports cameras as well as Goldington Road’s biggest crowd of the season, a whopping 4341.

A dominant first half display with tries from Mike Howard, Mark Flanagan, Nick Fenton-Wells and Michael Le Bourgeois secured a bonus point before the interval while Jake Sharp added three conversion before Fenton-Wells – who was awarded the Sky Sports Man of the Match – went over for a second after the break. London Scottish certainly played their part with two tries from Rory Hughes and Chris Walker while a penalty try went their way late on, but nothing would deny the Blues victory.

Bedford Blues will be kicking off 2016 against London Scottish not only in front of the Goldington Road faithful, but also in front of Sky Sports viewers around the world.
 
The Blues head into the New Year's Day fixture - which kicks off at 3.05pm - off the back of a Boxing Day victory over Moseley and a British & Irish Cup win over Bristol.
 
Looking ahead to the game, Blues Backs Coach Paul Larkin said: "While we have enjoyed a good festive period so far, we know that there is a huge task ahead of us against London Scottish who picked up a 24-12 win over us earlier this season.

It was a Boxing Day blockbuster at Billesley Common as Bedford Blues came out on the right end of a roller-coaster of a match against Moseley to consolidate their play-off position in the Championship with a 24-31 win, writes Bedfordshire on Sunday.

The Blues eventually out-scored their hosts five tries to four as both sides made light of the blustery conditions to put on a real spectacle for the crowd.

The match turned in the first eight minutes of the second half as two tries by full back Piers O'Conor helped Bedford turn a 14-12 half-time deficit into a 24-14 lead.

Bedford Blues will be looking to end the year on a high as they get set to face Moseley on Boxing Day at Billesley Common.

The Blues and Moseley were involved in a cracking encounter at Goldington Road earlier in the season which saw Bedford racking up a 38-32 win over their Midlands opponents who will certainly be looking for revenge this time around.

Bedford go into the game on the back of a 34-17 British & Irish Cup win over Bristol last weekend which saw the Blues running in five tries against the league leaders in an enthralling encounter.
