The WCC XX (S20) has been concluded and Batmancagone's Jolly Roger Crew have been crowned World Club Champions for an amazing 3rd time, comprehensively defeating zuibaf's La Banda Bonnot 10-50 in wet conditions, at La Fortezza. 

With a 33 point lead at halftime, Batmancagone's team could afford to take their feet off the gas, but I would like to congratulate Zuibaf on a great WCC season, and for making the WCC Cup final for the 1st time....an awesome effort.

Jolly Roger Crew's Fly-Half Diego Dominguez, once again had a great day scoring 20 points, and consolidating his lead to win the Cup/Plate Top Points Scorer.

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, but this season I have decided to give the award to a team that competes every season within the spirit of the award, even if they do not have many trophies to show for their commitment to the WCC.........but their spirit is reward itself.

So this season the Iorwerth Award is given to The Titans manager Widget
