Bedford Blues will be calling on their 16th man this weekend as Bristol visit Goldington Road in Round 4 of the GKIPA Championship season.

Having suffered a first defeat of the campaign to Ealing Trailfinders last weekend, Mike Rayer charges will be looking to bounce back immediately but know that they will need to be at the top of their game as Bristol come to town.

Speaking ahead of the game Rayer said: "We're certainly looking forward to this one and especially off the back of that disappointing seconnd half last week. We allowed Ealing far too much time and space and to their credit, they took it.

Following an impressive start to the season, Mike Rayer’s men suffered a slight road bump on Saturday, losing out to a very impressive Ealing Trailfinders, who now sit top of the standings.

The deadline for 2018 Six Nations ticket applications for Twickenham to watch England closes this Friday for Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders. 

Application emails with details were sent out a couple of weeks back with your application form, only entries received by Friday 22nd September will be processed. Unfortunately due to RFU international ticket restrictions, the Club are set to receive a small allocation and will be unable to fulfil many requested orders.

Bedford Blues tasted defeat for the first time this season as they were on the receiving end of a 45-25 loss against Ealing Trailfinders.

The Blues will be sorely disappointed with the second half which saw the host running away with the game and Bedford just couldn't find a way back into it.

Speaking at the full time whistle, hooker Tom Lindsay said: "I felt that we had it until half time but then silly errors and a couple of penalties let us down. They built pressure and it was hard to stop them.

*Amended - 9.35am, Saturday 16th September. Due to an injury during this morning's warm-up, Howard Packman has been withdrawn from the starting XV and replaced by Elliot Clements-Hill.
