Bedford Blues head up the A1 to find Championship Cup semi-final spot

Blues v Yorkshire Carnegie 3 Feb 2018

After what was one of the most exiting games of Championship Rugby last weekend, with Bedford Blues winning 53-52 against Coventry at Goldington Road, the boys will be looking to channel that warrior spirit against Yorkshire Carnegie on Sunday.

A victory will place the Bedford side into the final four of the Championship Cup.

There are few changes to the squad, however, with Dean Adamson returning to the starting line-up at full back and Rich Lane moving to outside centre with Lewis Robling reverting to fly half.

Meanwhile, in the forwards, Alex Penny comes into the front row while Josh Buggea starts at openside flanker.
