The WCC XXVII has now been completed, with Batmancagone's Jolly Roger Crew being crowned World Club Cup Champions for an unparalleled 6th time when they beat IT's 3ème Age 20-43 at La Canne Stadium.

With 3ème Age only being down by 9 Points as the half time whistle blew, IT's team must have thought there were a chance, but some key injuries in the 2nd half, none more importantly than kicking legend Bernardo Madeira, their chances of an upset slipped away. However they can be pleased with what was a fantastic WCC & IGTWCC season, and I am sure they will be back next season to try and go one place better.

Words cannot express what a fine achievement it is for the Jolly Roger Crew to win their 6th Title......many have tried and fallen at the final hurdle, but Batmancagone's efforts may never be repeated, and most likely he is the only team who might add to his tally, which include the following Championships over a number of seasons.

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 were 2 teams this season, that I believe always play with the spirit in which the WCC was created, and in which the Iorwerth Award exemplifies, and this season.....was no exception.

So I am proud to announce this seasons Iorwerth Awards go to;

WCC XXVII IORWERTH AWARDS
3ème Age - Manager: InstableTatoo
