Bedford Blues return to Championship action this weekend and will be hoping that their league form in 2014 continues as they welcome Nottingham to Goldington Road on Saturday.

The year started with a pleasing win over London Scottish, but two defeats in the British & Irish Cup see the Blues looking to reinvigorate their season in front of their home fans this weekend.

Match Report – Saturday January 25th 2014

Bedford Blues vs Nottingham

It was only on Friday night that I learnt that I was to be the Blues Junior Reporter – the Very Next Day! I didn’t know whether to be excited or petrified and probably ended up as a mixture of both. I arrived at Goldington Road good ‘n’ early in order to meet Sam – the ‘real’ match commentator. It was a lovely afternoon – mild and breezy with the sun shining on the turf.

Bedford Blues tasted defeat at home in the British & Irish Cup on Saturday afternoon but it was a cracking afternoon of rugby with both teams running in four tries during the afternoon.

Unfortunately, the Blues picked up three more injuries that they could have done without and the upright stopped a penalty and conversion going over in this back-and-forth game.

The Blues Academy lost to the Eastern Counties Under 20 XV, at Thetford, by 25pts – 19.  In a game played in 3 x 25 minute periods the Blues were 10-0 down at the end of the first period; they fought back to 13-12 down at the end of the second period, before losing by 25-19 at full time.

A bad day at the office for Bedford saw them lose their crucial British & Irish Cup Pool Three clash 44-15 at Llanelli as the home side put seven tries past the Blues.

Bedford looked good for the first 10 minutes at the impressive Parc y Scarlet, but were ultimately let down by sloppy ball control as they crashed out of the competition. Llanelli kicked off and Bedford got off to a great start as they stole the first lineout. Corey Hircock stopped a break from Steff Hughes and Michael Le Bourgeois looked firm with his tackling.
