If you've never seen the 'head to head' feature in a match day programme (and why wouldn't you?), here's a little taster of what you've been missing as Ben Adams and Ollie Dodge took on an array of questions. 

This feature is available in every home match programme, buy yours on the gate this Friday for just £2.50.

Bedford Blues headed to France and Belgium last week to commemorate Remembrance Day. How was the experience? What were the highlights?

Blues players and coaches recently took advantage of a week off to make a special trip to France and Belgium to pay their respects to those who sacrificed their lives to secure and protect our freedom as well as remembering former Bedford players who died during World War One.
 
On Tuesday 31st October, the squad travelled across the English Channel to visit Dunkirk where over 300,000 allied soldiers were evacuated from the beaches and harbour during World War Two. The operation - codenamed Dynamo - was the largest military evacuation of its kind and took place between 26th May and 4th June 1940.
 

It was honours even at Castle Park on Saturday afternoon as Bedford Blues scored late on to level the game before collectively sighing in relief as Simon Humberstone's drop goal attempt drifted just wide of the uprights in the final play of the game.

It was a fitting ending to a hugely entertaining game which saw both sides fighting tooth-and-nail to try and win the game as Bedford reduced a ten point deficit to set up the grandstand finale.

Bedford Blues return to Championship action this weekend with the always difficult trip to Castle Park to face Doncaster Knights.
 
Morale is high around Goldington Road following a bonus-point win over Nottingham last weekend, but the Blues are in no doubt that Saturday's encounter against the Knights will be anything but a huge challenge.
 

Bedford Blues leap-frogged their opponents Nottingham into third place in the Greene King IPA Championship with an impressive 30-12 win under the Friday night lights.

A hat-trick for Chris Czekaj and a well-deserved penalty try for the pack ensured that a bonus point was in the bag, but the Blues were disappointed to concede two late tries which took the polish slightly off the win.
