Bedford Blues matchday!


Missed.

After a week when there has been no news coming out of Headingley worth reporting we are back in a matchday situation today as the lads travel down to Goldington Road to play Bedford Blues in the B&I cup. So it is back to business as usual.....

We have lost our way somewhat in the cup this season (some might say in the league as well.) Today is an opportunity to set things straight. Whilst we have left some key players back in Yorkshire there are some interesting selections in the squad as well as a couple of returnees following injury.

Beech , Nilsen, O'Donnell is the front row. No problems there. That is a strong front row.

Sanderson and West in the boilerhouse - OK as long as Dan stays on the field.

Mayhew, Saull, Stedman. Hm... two opensides in the backrow. Oh well, let's see how it goes.

Green and Seals at halfback...yes, both are sound players.

Gray and Wright in the centres ...potentially our future centre pairing. No worries there.

McColl, Prell, Goss as a back three. If Stevie refinds his form these 3 could win the game for us.

Cusack is the only prop on the bench which suggests we will see Beech for the full 80. That apart we are fielding a strong bench unless Seals gets crocked.

A win today will set us up nicely for the  home tie with Ealing who put 50 past us at Vallis Way earlier in the season. On a very cold day dominance in the forwards will be needed so I do not expect the ball to be flung around with reckless abandon. Control up front and then take the chances as they appear should see us beat an erratic Blues side.

HT 0-14

Tries from Beech and O'Donnell both converted by Warren Seals. Our roving reporter reckons Bedford dominated early set piece and both side missed chances.

Excellent result with some regulars rested, even if there was a familiar pattern to the second half. Makes next weeks sojourn in Scarborough more interesting!

Bedford are a decent side so that's a good win especially with the changes.
Really looking forward to what we can achieve this season.

I've just seen the highlights on the Offy and Seals try was an absolute belter followed by a cracking conversion from wide out on the right.
