Bedford Blues have been looking to strengthen their squad by signing outside-half Will Maisey from league rivals Coventry on a short-term deal until the end of the season. Maisey, 27 years old, goes straight into contention for this weekend’s fixture with table-toppers, Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park. He brings plenty of proven Greene King IPA Championship experience having played for Nottingham before his return to Coventry. He is on the bench for this match.

Starting to play a very settled side now. Connon getting the nod at 10 now.
Nice to see Montgommery getting a run out at lock aswell.
Nine of tomorrow nightís starting XV are
graduates, with 12 of the 15 being English-qualified...
Perhaps we are closer to the homegrown dream than we think
Strong side though
And still room for a few decent local finishers
Usual high quality back row regardless of the permutations. We have good options there.
Connon Flood has become something of a fixture and looks good. I think it must help Connon to have Flood there but equally I would like to see Williams at 12 with Stevenson at 13. The idea of 2 big strong quick centres in tandem works for me.
Hopefully another performance in the right direction.
He's the second playmaker at 12 now...maybe its suits him in his aging years...
I also like the idea of having more of a running threat from both centres.
We shall see tonight and certainly I canít see it being an ideal breeding ground for a virus outdoors in a cold wind. To be fair it is unlikely to be so busy that we are sat/stood on top of each other.
