The WCC XXIX has now been completed, and Safe Hands Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers have been crowned World Club Cup Champions for the 2nd successive time, beating 3ème Age 32 - 39 away from home at La Canne Stadium in the glorious Ivory Coast.

3ème's fans might have expected the result, as the 38000 seater stadium, had more vacant seats than a Bay City Rollers concert, but they should have had faith in their manager IT, who once again almost pulled off another amazing 2nd half performance to just fall short of stealing a win.

Again, it was a season to behold for the Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers winning both the IGTWCC Cup and the WCC Cup....which means that they are automatically awarded this seasons WCC Cup Masters......an awesome achievement, that has only been done once before, when RazorbladeYfronts dominated the earth.

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 that I thought had both played a great season, but had not come away with any rewards and that was Les Bandits Manchots and Val-Vartej.

Every season they always play within the spirit in which the WCC was created, and bounce back without complaint each season, wherever they finish.

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

WCC XXIX IORWERTH AWARDS
 Les Bandits Manchots - Manager: Vanzi
 Val-Vartej - Manager: iridru
