Bedford Blues have been rocked by the news that flanker Darren Fox could miss up to three months of the season after breaking his arm during the British & Irish Cup against Llanelli on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the injury, Fox continued playing before having to leave the field with eight minutes remaining on the clock in the Blues first win of the season.

After attending hospital an x-ray revealed a clean break to Fox’s left arm and he underwent surgery earlier this week.

Speaking about the injury, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said:

Friday 16th August was a special day for new Blues signing Michael Le Bourgeois. After completing his summer move to Bedford he pulled on the famous jersey for the very first time and would open his Goldington Road account against Premiership giants Northampton. Then he met Courtney Lawes!

Not one for shying away from a tackle, Mr Lawes gave Booj both barrels – the video on Youtube went viral with over 210,000 hits (no pun intended) - but the man from Jersey got the pass away, dusted himself down and, more importantly, learnt a little something.

Goldington Road was the location for Bedford Blues to pick up their first win of the season having overcome Llanelli 29-24 in the British & Irish Cup.

Following the game Sam Roberts caught up with back row star Nick Fenton-Wells and slippery centre Brendan Burke to look back at the previous 80 minutes. Here is the interview along with all of the Blues tries from the victory.

It took a while to come but the monkey has finally been booted into touch as Bedford Blues recorded their first win of the season against a very resilient Llanelli side in the British & Irish Cup. It was Ladies Day at Goldington Road with 2603 fans in attendance and tries from Charlie Clare, Ollie Dodge, Mike Le Bourgeois, Mike Howard and Neville Edwards ensured a bonus point win for the crowd.

Despite dominating huge chunks of the game, Llanelli kept on sneaking their way back into it but their late rally was a little too late to spoil the Bedford party. For Full Report Click Here...
