Saints played Bedford in pre-season last year, claiming a 40-21 win against the Championship club at Goldington Road on September 3.

An early score put Bedford ahead within the first quarter but Saints soon found their feet in that encounter, sending Rory Hutchinson, Tom Litchfield and Alex Mitchell over before the break.

Josh Gillespie scored just after half-time before Bedford fought back with two tries of their own to close the gap.

Saints rounded off the scoring with a late brace of tries through Tom Collins and Fraser Dingwall.
