Friday 16th August was a special day for new Blues signing Michael Le Bourgeois. After completing his summer move to Bedford he pulled on the famous jersey for the very first time and would open his Goldington Road account against Premiership giants Northampton. Then he met Courtney Lawes!

Not one for shying away from a tackle, Mr Lawes gave Booj both barrels – the video on Youtube went viral with over 210,000 hits (no pun intended) - but the man from Jersey got the pass away, dusted himself down and, more importantly, learnt a little something.

Fast forward nine weeks to the visit of Llanelli to Goldington Road in the British & Irish Cup. The visitor’s second row forward Llewellyn Jones had broken clear and was on his way to an impressive score if he could just beat the final man. That man was Michael Le Bourgeois…

Booj takes a leaf from Courtney Lawes book.
