Bedford Blues were pleased to present a record breaking cheque of £7,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support at last weekend’s match following yet another fantastic Ladies Day on Saturday 21st October.

The Blues certainly made Ladies Day 2017 a day to remember on the field with a staggering 43-19 win over Ospreys, but the club are equally proud of a cause much bigger than rugby.

Supporters raised the staggering amount for the club’s new Cancer Charity Partner Macmillan through raffles, auctions and collections at the club’s tenth Ladies Day event.

There was to be very little Christmas cheer at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as Munster ‘A’ gate crashed the party with a 12-16 win in the British & Irish Cup.

A week after the Blues had defeated the Irish outfit in Cork, the men in red put in a solid defensive display and finished their chances to keep the Pool wide open with two games left to play.

Bedford did cross the whitewash twice with good scores from Dean Adamson and Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, but a try from prop Ciaran Parker and the boot of Bill Johnston ensured that Munster ‘A’ returned home happy.

Bedford Blues have named their 22 man squad for the festive fixture against Munster 'A' in the British & Irish Cup this weekend.

After the 14-25 win at Irish Independent Park last Friday, the Blues make five changes to the starting line-up with four coming in the forwards and one in the backs.

The most noteable change is a starting place for Bedford stalwart Paul Tupai who will be making his 250th appearance for the Blues. Toops - who is celebrating his testimonial year - starts at blindside flanker and joins an illustrious band of players to achieve the impressive number of Bedford caps.

Bedford Blues are back at Goldington Road this Saturday 16th December for a festive fixture v Munster A in the return B&I Cup battle (KO 3pm).

Sitting first and second in the group, the Blues will be looking to solidify their place at the top following last weekend’s impressive victory in Cork, but expect a reaction from the reigning champions who will be hunting revenge for last Friday’s encounter.

Mike Rayer’s men came from 14 points down in Ireland to turn things around, scoring 25 unanswered points with tries from Sean McCarthey and a brace for top try scorer Dean Adamson as Will Hooley added two conversions and two penalties.
