Sir Ian McGeechan said he was pleased with the effort and approach from his side following Yorkshire Carnegie’s 15-8 win over Bedford Blues.

Speaking after the game McGeechan said “Bedford are not an easy side to play against and I think our players have done really well this last week and I have been impressed by their approach and you could see the effort that went on the field today.

“We obviously made it difficult for ourselves at times, in errors more than anything, but credit to them for putting in a performance like that, particularly in the second half when there was a lot of defence work, and they were able to secure a hard fought win.”
