Dave Ikin snaps Northampton Saints’ new faces in action during traditional derby with Bedford Blues

Northampton Saints 40 - 26 Bedford Blues * Pictures by Dave Ikin

Way back in history I reported on the Bedford Blues as a proud Bedfordian and to us this fixture meant as much as Saints/Tigers does at Franklin’s Gardens.

Today as a proud Northamptonian I see this fixture somewhat differently although I still have a soft spot for the club where I first saw the top level game being played.

There is now a partnership between the teams that allows players to move between them to gain experience, progression and game time.

However that did not stop this being a lively encounter in which Bedford showed they have scoring options.
