Bedford Blues recorded their first win of the season in a hard fought encounter against Championship new boys Richmond at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

Six tries – including a hat-trick for Pat Tapley – ensured a bonus point win for the Blues, but they were certainly made to work extremely hard for their victory.

Round five of the Greene King IPA Championship sees Bedford Blues returning to Goldington Road to host league new boys Richmond on Saturday afternoon.

While a win has proven elusive so far this season, the Blues have seen huge improvements on the field and they will be looking to progress one step further this weekend.

But Bedford know that they are in for a huge challenge as Richmond, who are also to get a win under their belt this season, will have set their own target heading into the game.

The Blues aim to kick start a busy October this Saturday against newly promoted Richmond at Goldington Road following last weekend’s narrow defeat to Doncaster Knights (KO 3pm).

Whilst some have tipped Richmond for relegation, Mike Rayer’s men will certainly not be underestimating the side from the capital who ran Rotherham very close last time out. The Blues are in a similar position to Richmond having not registered a win so far this season so both sides will be focused on changing that this Saturday.

The deadline for 2017 Six Nations ticket applications for Twickenham to watch England closes today for all 2016-17 Bedford Blues Season Ticket holders.

It was a case of close but no cigar for Bedford Blues on Saturday afternoon as they went down 30-22 to Doncaster Knights at Castle Park.

It was a back and forth game throughout with the lead changing hands four times, but ultimately it was the hosts who took the spoils late on as Bedford finished the game with 14 men.

Tries from Jake Sharp, Jason Hill, Tom Farrell and Jacob Field earned the Blues a bonus point, but two tries for the Knights in the last ten minutes after Ben Adams was sin binned, secured the win for the hosts.
