Bedford Blues are back at Goldington Road this Saturday 16th December for a festive fixture v Munster A in the return B&I Cup battle (KO 3pm).

Sitting first and second in the group, the Blues will be looking to solidify their place at the top following last weekend’s impressive victory in Cork, but expect a reaction from the reigning champions who will be hunting revenge for last Friday’s encounter.

Mike Rayer’s men came from 14 points down in Ireland to turn things around, scoring 25 unanswered points with tries from Sean McCarthey and a brace for top try scorer Dean Adamson as Will Hooley added two conversions and two penalties.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce the appointment of former player and current Director of Rugby at Moulton College, Jon Phillips, as the new Head of Community.  

Phillips has a very impressive playing and coaching CV in addition to 10 years’ experience running the delivery at one of the region’s leading rugby education centres.

Three was the magic number for Bedford Blues in Cork on Friday night as they ran in three tries against Munster A to pick up their third win out of three in the British & Irish Cup.

Having trailed 14-0 after half an hour, the Blues fought back magnificently in tough conditions with a brace of tries from Dean Adamson and one for Ed Taylor as well as ten points from the boot of Will Hooley to secure a 14-25 win over the current Cup holders.

It is with great sadness that the Club has been informed that Colin Barnes, Chairman of Lifesure Group, one of Bedford Blues main sponsors and club supporters has passed away suddenly at the age of 83 years-old.

Colin has been a long-time fan of the Blues and his company have been extremely proud sponsors for the past 12 years providing much needed support which has been greatly appreciated by everyone at the club. 

Lifesure Insurance was opened by Colin in May 1971 and he has led the company to huge success in a very competitive insurance broker market.

Bedford Blues took on the Cornish Pirates in a barnstormer of a Greene King IPA Championship fixture, but it was the hosts who took the win while the Blues left Penzance with a single bonus point.

Last season, this fixture saw a 40-40 draw and once again it was a truly entertaining encounter but with slightly tighter defences.

An injury to Ben Adams in the warm-up ruled the Australian back rower out of the game so Josh Buggea came in for his first start of the season while Paul Tupai took a place on the bench.
