The WCC XXVI (S26) has just been concluded and Khan have been crowned World Club Champions for the 4th time in succession, in a repeat of last seasons Final against Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers, this time beating them 19 - 34 at the Old Mine Stadium in Zimbabwe.

Safe Hands Geezers, should be very proud of the way they played, and narrowed the margin from last seasons final, but Khan was still too good. If Khan ever manage to snag a Home final in the WCC......the record books could well be broken

Congratulations of course to razorbladeYfronts, as his team has now equaled legendary Frodsham Koala Bears, 4 straight World Club Championships, and is only one Championship behind the best ever teams who have won 5 Cups overall;

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 who come back season after season, and 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;
