Bedford Blues confirm 2012/13 squad
Rae, who joined Bedford in 2009 from Northampton Saints having come through the Worcester Warriors Academy, has been a key component to the Blues scrum and has the versatility to play in the back row. His leadership qualities saw him named as Vice-Captain last season and he led the team out while usual Skipper James Pritchard was on World Cup duty.
Bedford Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: “It is great news that Alex has signed on for another season at Goldington Road and I am delighted that we have 28 quality players in place for the coming campaign.
“We are still looking at a number of individuals who have come through the Academy as well as a couple of trialists and we have a strong working relationship with Saracens which will see a number of players being Dual-Registered, although the details are still to be confirmed.
“All-in-all we are in a great position on and off the field and I think that everyone is enjoying the remainder of their break before we get back to work at the end of the month.”
The Blues 2012/13 squad is as follows:
