By Blues Ed
February 15 2019

Irish last week Scottish this week and it may not be any easier. The Tartan exiles may be in mid-table but they've won their last two games including at the fortress that is the home of Jersey Royals ..  

We travel on the back of a great show against leaders Irish but make six changes from that side. Should be another cracking game and what's the odds on a repeat 52-52 draw?

Lee Dickson has recovered from an illness and will be alongside Will Hooley who returns from injury with  Matt Worley at outside centre and Dean Adamson  on the wing.

Up front Jacob Fields and Alex Penny are in the front row.

Blues: 15. Rich Lane 14. Ryan Hutler 13. Matt Worley 12. Lewis Robling 11. Dean Adamson 10. Will Hooley 9. Lee Dickson (captain)  1. Sean McCarthy
2. Jacob Fields 3. Alex Penny 4. Will Carrick-Smith 5. Mark Flanagan 6. Oli Curry 7. Huw Worthington 8. Jarad Williams

Reps: Tadgh McElroy, Toby Trinder, Ben Cooper, Paddy Ryan, Josh Buggea, James Lennon, Jake Sharp.

Bedford placed fourth in the league playing London Scottish placed eighth........its usually a recipe for disaster when we play clubs below us .........anyone thinking itís going to be easy should perhaps reconsider.......but letís hope.....and cross our fingers.....

They had a great result last week. Let's hope that the form drops off from that, good looking side from the blues.

Good stuff although the line out was poor, Jake using his brain more than his ample body. Result.

Some very good displays yesterday. Sharpie MOM, Worthington work rate, Oli Curry (our new enforcer) was on top form. Injury to Hooley looked bad at first, but seemed OK ish later. Scottish just couldnít get the ball wide enough, quick enough. Good defence Blues, big noisy support too.

Wil Hooley was on the train home last night said his shoulder was fine and he is off to the states today. Great performance from the blues yesterday very good game management in the 2nd half. Great win well done lads.

How are the Saints registered lads like Ryan, Trinder & Worley going?

Pleased to see them getting game time with Bedford. I'm a Saints STH but try to get down to Goldington Road once or twice a year.

Ryan has come off the bench both games and hasnít looked out of place. I would actually like to see him back next year.

Trinder has been good in the scrum and helped us to beat Coventry coming off the bench to win a penalty from which we went on to score the winning try.

Worley is great in attack, defence Iím not so sure about, however our 10/12/13 have been a revolving door with injuries so until they can play together as a unit we canít really make a fair reflection.

Overall they have looked good and if we perhaps had them for the whole season next year theyíll benefit and develop more.

Thought Matt Worley had a really good game on Saturday, think it's the first time he's started, took his try really well. Like the look of both Ryan and Trinder, hopefully we'll see all three next season.

Thanks for the update. Worley was getting picked to bench for the A team at Saints but scoring for fun when he got on.
