Bedford Blues captain Nick Fenton-Wells was delighted with his side’s 31-22 victory at Plymouth Albion on Saturday.

Tries from Paul Tupai, Pat Tapley and two from Dean Adamson was enough to see the visitors secure a bonus point victory in the South West.

Fenton-Wells said: ‘I am delighted as it was a very good win for us.

“To come away to Plymouth and collect five points is no mean feat, as they proved when they put Rotherham to the test last week.

“Credit to them, they pushed us all the way but we were brilliant in how we played and getting this win, I thought we fully deserved it.”

Much of the victory was down to a forward pack that dominated throughout, especially in the set-piece area, according to the South African number eight.

He continued: “A big shout out must go to the front five.

“They worked unbelievably hard, especially at the end there to put in a massive shift in getting that push over try.

“The guys kept working hard in the corner to try and look for space on the outside and look for that bonus point try, something we are delighted we achieved.

“The way we finished the match last week at London Scottish and again against Plymouth, there is no doubt there are plenty of positives.

“There are still a few things we need to work on.

“Perhaps our offloads didn’t go to hand, but there are plenty of positives we can take from the victory and into the rest of the season.”
