The WCC XXXVIII has now been completed, and Safe Hands Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers have been crowned World Club Cup Champions for the 6th time beating Reigning champions qpeace 's Beginners Mind RFC, 10 - 33 at Lowbury Stadium in Scotland.

The Geezers lead from the start when prop Clint Makama trundled across the try line in the 4th minute, and they actually kept the Mind scoreless in the 1st half. They were simply too strong and their 6th title was really just a formality.

Congratulations to all the other managers who took out the trophies in the groups.....some very fine, well contested efforts

Next we have the prestigious "Iorwerth Award" which was created in honour of BR manager and WCC Founder Iorwerth, is awarded to the team or teams that we believe have 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.

This season the Trophy goes to Flaminio Runners manager jdona who has been with us for many seasons, from at least season 10, and has always competed at the top, with success at times, but always with a desire to compete....whoever the opposition...we are glad to have them in the WCC

So I am proud to announce this season's Iorwerth Award goes to;

WCC XXXVIII IORWERTH AWARD
Flaminio Runners - Manager: jdona

As mentioned a few seasons, I decided to introduce the WCC RFS Sportsman Award, in honour of one of the WCC Founders manager RFS.

For a long time I have been the face of the WCC, but there was work and reputation that preceded me and I have been proud to evolve and grow the comp since the early days, but RFS & Iorwerth were the managers who started the journey.

The Trophy contains a Shield and RFS's Basingwerk RFC "Well Warriors" Logo.

This season the Trophy goes to Westmen manager westman who has also been with us for many seasons, in varying levels of the comp, but always there, always competing.....and always ready for the next season.....he and many like him are the reasons the WCC has been the no.1 comp for many seasons
