The WCC XXI (S21) has been concluded and Batmancagone's Jolly Roger Crew have been crowned World Club Champions for an amazing 4th time, overcoming home advantage, to beat Undeads RFC 23-31 at the Kronstadt Stadium.

With a 7 point lead at halftime, Undeads RFC manager, Undead must have felt quietly confident that at last his team would be crowned WCC Champions after having been Runners Up on 3 previous occasions, but when Warwick crashed over the try line in the 44th and then the 50th minute, the writing was on the wall....and the Italian Giants never looked back.

So congratulations to Jolly Roger Crew's Batmacagone for an amazing 4th title.....which has only been bettered by the legend that is mikemike778's Frodsham Koala Bears.

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 regularly in both WCC & IGTWCC and this season actually finished in 4th place in both the WCC & IGTWCC Plaque competition........a cruel spot to finish in......but an awesome effort benski
