Hi all

I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on Bedford Blues this season? We're 2nd in the league and only 7 pts behind Worcester, can we win the league?

Worcester look really strong, I must admit, but I think with the likes of James Pritchard, Sacha Harding and Dan Seal we can push them all the way..

Out of interest, did anyone see us Sky Sports back in October when we beat London Welsh?

James Pritchard has been awesome this season, especially vs Moseley last week. Not sure about Sacha Harding though, he needs to stop starring in daft shaving stunt videos like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3--GUrj47s LOL.......

Only joking, Sacha is a legend in Bedford.. Even still, I can't see us catching Worcester.. Big game on Jan 8, when we travel to Sixways to face them. We should have beat them at home, but will need to take the points this time!!

Up the Blues......

It's Worcesters to lose atm, but really, who knows.
Look what happened last season, it was almost a dead cert that Bristol were on their way back up, then they got spanked in the playoffs (spanked may not be the word, but Exeter certainly shocked a few people!)
While I'd like to see Worcester go back up to the prem, it'd be good to see another new team in there

Anything can happen the way the championship is set up. Bedford certainly have the quality to make it to the final, after that it's anyone's guess.

London Welsh have sort of slipped up in recent weeks but with this nonsense play off system anyone in the play offs come end of the season will be in with a shout.

Yes the play off system is a complete joke, that's for sure......

Bedford looked good at the Mem and have wooped our butts up at theirs today 39-22. No reason why they cant but it looks to be Worcesters to lose this year. Like we did.

James Pritchard just did an interview with the Canadian National team and talked about his incredible International and club season a must read for Bedford and Canada fans looks like Pritch beleives that his promotion to Captain has had a large impact of his play, I can seriously see and hope he looks into furthering his coaching when his playing days are over.

I went to the pre season friendly with Saracens, as my grandparents live there, and Bedford did look quite strong
