Following defeat away to Rotherham Titans last Saturday, Bedford Blues will be looking to bounce straight back against third placed London Scottish when they come to Goldington Road on Saturday 31st January (Kick Off 3pm).

Looking ahead to the Exiles match, stand-in skipper James Pritchard is searching for further improvements and to replicate a performance similar to that in the second half of the teams’ last meeting at the Richmond Athletic Ground, when the Blues ran in three tries compared to just one from the home side.

Goldington Road will be opening its gates on Wednesday 1st April for the annual Mobbs Memorial Match as Bedford Blues prepare to go to battle against The British Army (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Tickets for the whole event, including an East Midlands XV v Army ‘A’ warm-up fixture are available online here at the cost of just £10 for adults and £2 for children under 16.

Clifton Lane continues to be a thorn in Bedford Blues side as Mike Rayer's men went down 34-19 to Rotherham Titans on Saturday afternoon.

If this is to be the Titans last season at Clifton Lane as reported in their local media then there may be a few who won't miss it given that Bedford haven't won here since 2012.

This game did have everything though. Rain, hail, snow, wind and sunshine. Rotherham got off to a perfect start when the ball was stripped from a Bedford maul and made its way to Rotherham hooker Tom Cruse who was able to gallop up the other end of the pitch to score in the first minute with Barrett converting.

Bedford Blues have started 2015 in fine form but they know that they will have to be at their best if they are to take anything from Rotherham Titans on Saturday afternoon.
 
Trips to Clifton Lane haven’t been too fruitful of late and you have to go back to March 2012 for the Blues last win there when tries from Ollie Dodge, Don Barrell, Josh Bassett and Darryl Veenendaal helped Bedford to a 19-32 in the play-offs.
 
Bedford have enjoyed two wins out of two this year when they overcame Moseley a fortnight ago before turning over Doncaster Knights with a final minute try at Goldington Road last weekend.
 

LATEST - Game cancelled by Cambridge:
==================================

The Blues Academy are away against Cambridge U22 XV this Saturday.

Bedford make ten changes (two of them positional) to the starting lineup that beat Ealing last week. 

Last Saturday's brilliant win against Doncaster Knights saw Bedford Blues move into the top half of the Greene King IPA Championship table with further signs of improvement ahead of a testing trip to fifth placed Rotherham Titans this weekend.

The Blues continued their impressive start to 2015 as they overcame a strong Knights side to seal a last minute 35-29 victory with the foundations built on another fantastic set-piece. Two ever-present features on this new front-row powerhouse are Blues forwards Charlie Clare and James Currie who spoke to the official Club website ahead of what promises to be a titanic clash upfront against last season’s Championship semi-finalists.

In just over nine months Rugby World Cup 2015 will come to Milton Keynes, the nearest host venue to Bedford Blues, and they need your help to make the whole event extra special.

In the centre of MK, Campbell Park will host the Fanzone between October 1-11 and there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer at this special event. You can find out more about getting involved at an information event being held from 6.30pm – 8pm on Thursday 15 January at Campbell Park Pavilion. The Parks Trust staff will be on hand to tell you about what’s planned for the Fanzone and to explain the many different volunteering roles that are available.

Bedford Blues maintained their unbeaten start to 2015 but they left it very late to overcome a determined Doncaster Knights side who had led for the majority of the game.

In fact, the winning try came with 15 seconds left on the clock as Jake Sharp found himself out on the right wing to dot down and send the Goldington Road crowd into rapturous applause before James Pritchard tied a bow on the game to convert and make the score 35-29.

Bedford Blues Academy played their first game since the Christmas break, away to Ealing on their synthetic 3G pitch.  With two last minute changes in the back line, due to an injury in the warm up, and a late arrival, Bedford had to rearrange their back line minutes before the kick off.  Playing up the hill, and against a strong wind in the first half, the Blues turned around at half time down by 22pts – 17.  The second half was a different affair with the Blues scoring 31 unanswered points to win by 48pts – 22.

Bedford Blues will be hoping to continue the New Year celebrations as they welcome Doncaster Knights to Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.
 
The Blues got 2015 off to the best possible start with a 15-23 win over Moseley at Billesley Common and Director of Rugby Mike Rayer is hoping that his side can continue their recent good form against a Doncaster team who have already notched up two B&I Cup wins over Bedford this season.
