Bedford Blues gave one of their best performances all season at Ashton Gate, but it wasn’t to be as they went down 38-14 to the league leaders Bristol, writes Ryan Lewis.

The Blues travelled west off the back of four straight defeats in the Greene King IPA Championship, but played with confidence and ambition, threatening a side full of international experience. 

The result could have been better for the visitors but for a referee who harshly sent four Bedford players to the bin, three of which coming just before the half-time whistle.

Bedford Blues Academy welcomed a Leicester Tigers Academy side, who had beaten Wales U18s and England Counties U18s in their last two games, to Goldington Road on Sunday. 

The Blues took an early lead after 10 minutes but went into half time 14pts - 5 behind after a closely contested first half.  Tigers’ superior pace and power saw them stretch away in the last 20 minutes to end as deserved winners by 47–5.

Bedford Blues will be looking to bounce back this weekend in a sizeable task against top of the table Bristol Rugby at Ashton Gate on Sunday (Kick Off 3pm).

Looking ahead to the reverse fixture of Boxing Day at Goldington Road, Blues centre Michael Le Bourgeois believes composure and taking the game to the league leaders will be key in gaining a result from Bristol.

Le Bourgeois said: “Every game counts, it’s not one that we can let slip so we will take the game to them - they’re top of the league for a reason so both teams will be trying to play, but we have to keep our composure.” 

The draw for the Bedford Blues Under 19s 10-a-Side Tournament was completed on Friday night ahead of the Blues game against Cornish Pirates.
 
The draw, which was made by Ian Connell, Chairman of Cornish Pirates, and Ian Baggott, President of the East Midlands Referees Society, has determined which teams go into each Pool for the inaugural tournament which takes place on Sunday 26th April at Goldington Road.
 

In this exciting year of rugby with the World Cup coming to England, Bedford Blues are pleased to announce their 2015/16 Season Ticket packages offering supporters the chance to enjoy another enthralling Greene King IPA Championship and B&I Cup season at Goldington Road with frozen prices and additional benefits when purchased before the end of May.

Blues supporters are urged to show their support for the Club by taking advantage of an early bird discounted Season Ticket for all competitive league and cup pool stage matches.

It’s not every day that you get to have dinner with an England Rugby World Cup winner and former British and Irish Lions captain, but for one evening only Bedford Blues are making that possible as Martin Corry MBE comes to Goldington Road for a Sportsman’s Dinner.

Now retired from the game, Corry has carved out another successful career, becoming one of the most inspirational motivational and performance speakers in the world. Winning five Premiership titles and two Heineken Cups throughout his time on the pitch, the former England and Leicester Tigers skipper has many exciting stories to tell.
