Normal Service Resumed

Back to Saturday afternoon rugby at Goldington Road and the prospect of another epic game with sixth placed Donnie Knights the visitors.

Such is the competiveness outside the top two there are just points separating third placed Blues from our visitors - so there's lots to play for.

It's now three weeks since we played and that means we can field the side which was selected for the visit to Nottingham last week - until the latest blast from Siberia.

No such problems forecast this week so we will see  Rich Lane  at fullback  and Huw Worthington at openside. Harry Sheppard had his comeback delayed by a week and will be on the bench
 
Blues: 15. Rich Lane 14. Howard Packman 13. Rory Hutchinson 12. Michael Le Bourgeois (capt) 11. Dean Adamson 10. Will Hooley 9. Lee Dickson 
1. Sean McCarthy 2. Tom Lindsay 3. Ben Cooper 4. Jordan Onojaife 5. Will Carrick-Smith 6. Alex Rae 7. Huw Worthington 8. Jarad Williams
 
Reps: Jacob Fields, Dave Spelman,  Camilo Parilli-Ocampo,  Ed Taylor, Justin Blanchet, Jordan Burns, Harry Sheppard

Great win well done lads, the debacle at the end denied them an extra point which made the win even sweeter. Still laughing.

An interesting game with many good points pleasing to see us taking points when they were on offer, and denying Doncaster a bonus point at the end just added the icing on the cake, the whole team deserve the man of the match

Please explain if any of you know what happened at the end .....or for that matter if you just feel like offering a guess........either will do......

This is taken from the Blues match report "However, Bedford took control of the final minutes and set up camp in the Knights’ half before a rather strange ending to the game. A penalty came following a lineout and Bedford asked if time was up. Unbeknown to the ref and players, the kicking tee was on as Sheppard sent the ball to touch. With the whistle ringing out and players shaking hands, the Fourth Official informed the ref who then had to rescind his pea blowing for the kick to be taken. Sheppard stepped up, converted, and Donny left with just the single bonus point rather than two."

Very good performance and deserved 5 points. Credit to Doncaster, they were a good side and it was looking very ominous 5-15 down with Dickson in the bin. Did think at time it was a bit odd that we didn't go for 3 points at the end to deny them bonus - evidently someone from pitchside was thinking about that, so very fortunate reprieve!

None of our last 4 fixtures are straightforward, but on paper 3rd place is really ours to lose now.
