Bedford Blues 32 v 18 Llanelli
06 April 2013 - Goldington Road, Bedford

Match Preview

Qtr Final Time

This week we take on English Championship side Bedford at Goldington Rd in the Quarter Finals of the British & Irish Cup.


Having topped our group to qualify, Bedford literally brushed aside all before them in their group with sizeable back to back victories against Bedwas, Neath and Sterling. Of the eight groups they finished top of the qualifiers to guarantee themselves a home draw.


Yes we’ve won both our latest Premiership games, firstly against Cardiff and last week-end against Swansea but if the boy’s are to pose a serious threat at Bedford improvement must be made. Make no mistake, preparations this week will no doubt focus on what Llanelli can bring to this game and all will be working very hard to get the game plan right  – deep down the boy’s will have been a little disappointed in the manner of victory over the All Whites.


For their part, Bedford are having a super season. They lie in third spot in the Championship and are really set fare for the play-offs. Confidence will be high, although they will be wary of the threat Llanelli will pose.


It’s a long journey up to Bedford and to those who make the trip, let’s look forward to a tasty cup game with a semi final spot up for grabs.


As always look forward to seeing you, Enjoy!
