Leeds Carnegie Head Coach Diccon Edwards said his side had produced their best performance of the season in the win over Bedford.
Speaking to Leeds Carnegie TV, Edwards said, "I am very proud of the players today. To find ourselves 10-0 early on, be losing heavily on the penalty count and to play half the first half with 14 men, shows an incredible spirit amongst these players.
"Our challenge now is to back this performance up next week at home against Nottingham. I think people around the league will notice this result but we have to continue to work hard and look to improve."
Yorkshire Carnegie stars Jonah Holmes and Ryan Burrows both missed out at the RPA Players Awards 2016 to Bristol Jack Lam as the Greene King IPA Championship Player of the Year, as voted for by their fellow players.
