Bedford came up short in their second pre-season friendly at Vallis Way on Saturday as hosts Ealing Trailfinders won 34-25 writes Ted Kemplen of the Bedford Times & Citizen.

Ealing put six tries past Bedford on the 3G pitch in west London, in a game which saw a lot of free flowing rugby.

Blues kicked off the clash and immediately pressed Ealing, England U20 winger Nathan Earle making a good tackle to keep the hosts in their half.

Then director of coaching and Ealing number 10 for the afternoon, Ben Ward, was caught offside but Steffan Jones couldn’t get Bedford off the mark from the tee.

After a tough game against Leinster last week, the Blues Academy continued their pre-season preparations with a 29pts – 21 win over London Scottish.  With both sides having large squads the game was played over three 30 minute periods, to give both sets of coaches a chance to look at new players and new combinations.
