Following a tough encounter in the Channel Islands last weekend, the Blues now sit five points behind Jersey going into Round 13. A win for Mike Rayer’s men could see them draw back alongside the Reds who travel to league leaders London Irish on Sunday.

Five year old Lulu de Vries is an incredibly happy little girl who is also fighting one of the biggest battles imaginable. In January 2018, just months after starting school, Lulu was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma which has now spread to her bones, bone marrow and lymphatic system.

Bedford Blues Championship winning streak came to an abrupt halt on Saturday afternoon as they went down 29-13 to Jersey Reds in St Peter.

Trailing by just six points at the interval thanks to a Jarad Williams try, the Blues had a huge amount of possession and territory in the opening exchanges of the second half but failed to turn any of them into points. Instead, Jersey turned the ball over and crossed twice more with Ryan Hutler scoring a late consolation.
