The WCC XXIII (S23) has been concluded and Nem Vem Que Não Tem have been crowned World Club Champions for the 1st time, beating Mattt's Worcester Wusses14-40 at Pinvin Park.

In a match that was almost a repeat of Monday's IGTWCC Cup Final, Nem Vem Que Não Tem's great run continues, and winning both the WCC & IGTWCC means that he also wins the WCC Cup Masters automatically.

Great season mate, and commiserations to Mattt and his Wusses......but he does get a little bonus this season

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 where 3 teams who I could not split, both for their spirit of competition, and efforts in this WCC and in seasons past, and they are;

WCC XXIII IORWERTH AWARDS
