The Bedford Blues ended their league games in style on Saturday, beating London Scottish 62-21 and scoring ten tries.

It was the perfect way to celebrate Mike Rayer’s 500th game as the Blues’ director of rugby.

After making 62 appearances as a player in the 1990s, the former Wales international returned to Bedford in May 2005 and took charge of his first game three months later.

And his leadership this season propelled the Blues to fifth in the standings, finishing with 50 points in 20 games.

Their win at the Richmond Athletic Ground included four tries for Dean Adamson, taking his Blues tally to 98 – with the others by James Little, Joey Conway, Oli Stedman, Jamie Elliott, Matt Worley and Josh Pieterse. Wil Maisey and Louis Grimoldby added three conversions each.

Attention now turns to the Championship Cup on Friday April 8, when the Blues travel to Nottingham with the home game at Goldington Road on Saturday April 23.

Ampthill will play their final league game at Cornish Pirates on April 2, hoping to improve on their current seventh place in the table.

Their Championship Cup opponents Coventry travel to Dillingham Park on April 9, with the first leg on April 23.
