The WCC XXXXI has now been completed, and Guns N' Roses, managed by eddbutt have been crowned World Club Cup Champions for the 1st time beating Barrels Praetorians 30 - 16 at the QE Olympic Stadium in Croatia.

Guns N' Roses, were probably favourites from the start, but it was Della Libera from the Praetorians who drew 1st blood in the 2nd minute, but then the home team steadied and really were in control for the rest of the game.

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, and it 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 Ferocious Crocodiles manager Dahicandaz who has been a WCC regular many years, and had a good run in the plate this season, and almost came away with another Plate Winner Trophy like he had won in Season 30,...but it was not to be. He, and managers like him are the reason the comp has been successful .......for so long 

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

WCC XXXXI IORWERTH AWARD
Ferocious Crocodiles: Manager Dahicandaz

As mentioned a few seasons ago, I decided to introduce the WCC RFS Sportsman Award, in honour of one of the WCC Founders 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 Extra Large San Miguel manager Javi Andrello who has also been with us for many seasons, in varying levels of the comp, but without cashing in on any Silverware....but every season he is back

He and many like him are the reasons the WCC has been the no.1 comp for many seasons.
