Bedford Blues have named their 22-man squad which will take on the Cornish Pirates at the Mennaye Field on Sunday afternoon in the Greene King IPA Championship.

This weekend's game will be the first of three clashes between the two sides before Christmas as they prepare to face off in league and cup competitions.

The Blues versus the Pirates is rarely a dull affair, and much will be expected when third meet fourth in Penzance.

There was an enormous collective sigh of relief at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon as the Blues picked up a 29-28 win over Doncaster Knights.

Having led 17-0 at the break, the game headed into the 11th minute of stoppage time with just a solitary point separating the teams and the Knights on the attack. Solid defence finally saw the ball drop to the floor and Lewis Robling had the honour of tapping the ball into touch as the home fans erupted in applause.

Huge credit has to go to the visiting Knights who looked forlorn at the break, but regathered and provided an enthralling second half.
