Ted Carroll and Bedford Blues are delighted to welcome former Bath, Saracens and England prop David Flatman to Goldington Road for a Sportsman's dinner on Friday 2nd March.

Now a renowned TV pundit and podcast host, Flatman - who won eight caps for England - will be sharing stories from his stellar rugby career along with a few opinions on the state of the current game and maybe a view on the Six Nations which will have two rounds remaining.

Following a meeting of the organising committee, it has been confirmed today that Bedford Blues will face Ulster in the quarter-final of the British & Irish Cup with the game taking place at Goldington Road on the Easter weekend.

Also determined at the meeting was the draw for the semi-finals which - should Bedford progress from the game against Ulster - would see Bedford travel away from home to face the winner of the match between Ealing Trailfinders and Yorkshire Carnegie or Cornish Pirates* on the weekend of 20th/21st/22nd April.

Bedford Blues put in a workman like performance to beat Nottingham 32-15 at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon and ensure that their name is in the hat for the quarter-final draw.

A try double for Dean Adamson along with one each for George Edgson and Ed Taylor secured the try bonus while Will Hooley kicked 12 points during a solid performance in miserable conditions.

Speaking after the game, prop Alex Penny said: “It was a good performance and a cracking effort form the whole 22 particularly when you consider the conditions this afternoon. We pulled together and got the job done in the end.

Bedford Blues head into the sixth pool game of the British & Irish Cup knowing that a win over Nottingham will secure a quarter-final spot in the competition.

A hard fought 12-15 win over Ospreys in Port Talbot last Friday night meant that the Blues top Pool A and head into Saturday's fixture with their future very much in their own hands.

Bedford Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer is in a positive mood following training on Tuesday night as his charges prepare for the sixth and final pool game of the British & Irish Cup against Nottingham on Saturday afternoon.
 
The trip to Wales last Friday saw the Blues return with a hard-fought win, but it also came at a cost with injuries to Ollie Dodge and Harry Sheppard who could be side-lined for a few weeks after both suffered knocks to their shoulder.
