Bedford Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer is in a positive mood following training on Tuesday night as his charges prepare for the sixth and final pool game of the British & Irish Cup against Nottingham on Saturday afternoon.
 
The trip to Wales last Friday saw the Blues return with a hard-fought win, but it also came at a cost with injuries to Ollie Dodge and Harry Sheppard who could be side-lined for a few weeks after both suffered knocks to their shoulder.
 

Bedford Blues return home this weekend for a titanic battle against Nottingham in a must-win match with a British & Irish Cup Quarter Final spot at stake. Kick off is at the earlier time of 2pm so arrive early to avoid disappointment and become the Blues 16th man.

A win could cement a home knockout Cup tie which makes the match one of the most important this season following the excellent performances Mike Rayer’s men have delivered in Group A to lead the Pool ahead of reigning champions Munster.

Blues Community are pleased to announce another three-day rugby camp in February Half-Term on the 13th, 14th and 15th of next month for children of all ages at Goldington Road, click here to book your place.

Bedford Blues inched closer to the quarter finals of the British & Irish Cup with a hard fought win against the Ospreys Premier Select XV at Port Talbot on Friday night.

It wasn't the prettiest of games and it did come at a cost to the Blues in terms of injuries, but Bedford worked relentlessly to secure the win thanks to tries from Jordan Burns and Michael Le Bourgeois and kicks form Harry Sheppard and Will Hooley.

There wasn't a great deal to remember about the first 40 minutes which resembled a game of chess rather than rugby as both teams cancelled one another out.

Bedford Blues are delighted to learn that fly half Will Hooley has been called up to the USA squad which will compete in the Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) in February.

The announcement of Will's inclusion to the Eagles travelling squad was made today (Thursday 4th January) by Head Coach and former Worcester Warriors, Natal Sharks, Bath and Newcastle supremo, Gary Gold.

Cambridge born Will, who joined Bedford in the summer from Exeter Chiefs, qualifies for USA through his grandmother who was born and raised in Hollywood, California.

February brings a cerebral challenge to Goldington Road with the return of Jackie Markham's BRFA General Knowledge Quiz in the Scrum Hall.

Set a date in your diary for Friday 2nd February 2018 as the Blues players enjoy a break weekend from action.

Doors to the Scrum Hall are open at 7pm with the quiz starting at 7:30pm, so be there early to secure your table and get the drinks in before the eggheads get to work.

Teams can be up to six people, but if you don't have a team come along and we'll join you with some like-minded supporters.
