He has been an integral part of the RGC team, which sits in fourth place in the Welsh Principality Premiership, and was attracting attention from a number of rival Championship clubs.
But it was Bedford that he chose and Worthington made his debut for the club during Friday night’s British & Irish Cup victory over Munster A.
The 23-year-old , who has featured for the Dragons in the Anglo-Welsh Cup against Northampton and Scarlets, is a powerhouse from Penybontfwar who combined playing rugby with being a farmer before moving to Goldington Road.
Blues’ director of rugby Mike Rayer said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be welcoming Huw to Goldington Road and we are all really looking forward to seeing him in action.

“He has a big reputation in the Welsh Premiership and I’m sure that he’s going to fit in superbly at Bedford.
“Jarad Williams has played a lot of rugby this season and has been in fine form, so it is great to have a player of Huw’s calibre to come in and provide some tough competition for the Number 8 shirt.
“I think there’s going to be a great battle for the starting spot and that can only be a good thing for the team.”
