Michael Le Bourgeois
100kg 15st 10lbs
A talented utility back, capable of high levels of performance at fly-half, centre and full-back, Michael Le Bourgeois was named as RPA Championship Player of the Season following a stellar 2017/18 campaign with Bedford Blues.
The Blues skipper was also selected in the Rugby Paper’s 2017/18 Championship Dream Team.
The Channel Islander began his career with his local club, Jersey, as an 18-year-old. He went on to make over 100 appearances and score nearly 900 points for the Reds across six seasons, playing a key role in their progress from English rugby’s sixth tier to the Championship, where he scored their first ever try.
This provided the springboard for Le Bourgeois’ five-year stay at Goldington Road, which began in 2013 and saw him clock up close to 100 appearances in the Championship and British & Irish Cup.
His first season at Ricoh Arena saw him feature 14 times for the men in Black and Gold.
