The WCC XXVIII has now been completed, and Safe Hands Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers have finally been crowned World Club Cup Champions, the only title that has eluded them, beating Beginners Mind RFC 43 - 34 at the Old Mine Stadium in Zimbabwe.

In a Stadium that holds 30,000 fans, only a miserly 3,000 supporters turned up to watch their team beat their Scottish opponents.

The game was close from start to finish, and when qpeace's team hit half-time in the lead, he must have thought his WCC Dream was alive, but a couple of injuries to his team in the 1st 40 minutes may have been the difference, and the rest is history.

It was a season to behold for the Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers with both the IGTWCC Cup and the WCC Cup....which means that they are automatically awarded this season WCC Cup Masters......awesome achievement mate     

Congratulations must also go to Beginners Mind RFC manager qpeace, who has capped off another great WCC Season, and has added another trophy to his impressive cabinet.

So the WCC XXVIII Final Standings look like this;

Next we have the prestigious "Iorwerth Award" which was created in honour of BR manager and WCC Founder Iorwerth, is awarded to the team that we believe has played throughout each season's competition with the commitment, passion and spirit, that was originally intended for the WCC, when the competition idea was conceived.

Of course each season there are many teams that I consider for the award, and this season was no exception. However there was one team that caught my eye, that I believe overcame some away draws, and almost went all the way in the Plaque, and that was TooLong manager Bougedelah

Every season has alway played within the spirit in which the WCC was created.

So I am proud to announce this seasons Iorwerth Award goes to;

WCC XXVIII IORWERTH AWARDS
 TooLong - Manager: Bougedelah
