MATCH PREVIEW V NOTTINGHAM

***AMENDMENT: Bedford Blues have been forced into a late change to the replacements bench after Alex Rae was ruled out of the trip to Nottingham. Huw Worthington comes in to take his place.***

Bedford Blues return to Championship action on Tuesday night when they head to Lady Bay to face Nottingham in the re-scheduled Greene King IPA Championship clash.

Snow put the kibosh on the original fixture which was meant to be played on Sunday 17th March, so just 72 hours after facing Ealing Trailfinders in the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup, the Blues take to the field once again with the prize of sealing third place in the league up for grabs.

With such a quick turnaround, only Josh Buggea keeps his place in the starting XV. Elliot Clements-Hill, Chris Czekaj, Ryan Hutler, Harry Sheppard and Jordan Burns all start in the backs while Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, George Edgson and Alex Penny make up a new front row with Ed Taylor and Paul Tupai in the second row and Ben Adams at Number 8. The Blues welcome dual-registered Saracens players Matt Gallagher, Rotimi Segun and Jack Nay into the starting line-up while Ralph Adams-Hales takes a place on the bench.
