Bedford Blues British & Irish Cup campaign fizzled out on Saturday afternoon as Mike Rayer's men went down 15-12 to the Newport Gwent Dragons Premiership Select XV.

A disruptive afternoon saw the game being shifted from The Bridge Field at Bedwas to the Dragons' Ystrad Mynach training ground due to the pitch being still frozen in places and not safe to play. The kick off at the new ground was delayed to 4.30pm with the Blues travelling from 6:30am.

Bedford Blues have named their team to head to South Wales on Saturday afternoon for the final British & Irish Cup group game against the Dragons Select XV.

While neither team can progress to the quarter-final stage, Mike Rayer's men will be looking to put in a big performance before attention turns back to the Greene King IPA Championship season next weekend.

Bedford make a host of changes for the game at Bedwas with Michael Le Bourgeois, Dean Adamson, Myles Dorrian and Jordan Burns returning to the backs while Jacob Fields, Christian Judge, Paul Tupai, Ed Taylor and Josh Buggea start up front.

Starting line-up:

Bedford Blues Community are delighted to announce another three-day rugby camp in February Half-Term on the 14th, 15th and 16th of next month with a special early bird and late leaver offer via our new community booking portal.

It’s all go in the community team with a host of camps set up for the coming holidays, the first of which this February will deliver a hands-on rugby experience again at Goldington Road.

Bedford's chances of reaching the quarter finals of the British & Irish Cup came to an end on Saturday afternoon as they went down 12-29 to Yorkshire Carnegie.

Tries from Ollie Dodge and Tom Whiteley did give Bedford hope in the second half, but the visitors had been clinical in finishing their chances and were tough to break down.

Bedford Blues have announced thier team for the crucial British & Irish Cup fixture with Yorkshire Carnegie that kicks off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

The teams have faced off twice already this season with the visitors holding a two nil victory with wins in the cup and league up in Yorkshire, but Saturday is the first game of the New Year at Goldington Road and the Blues will be looking to kick off 2017 in fine fashion in front of their own fans.
