XLVII Champion Crowned
The WCC XLVII has now been completed, and Chiredzi Communist Commune, managed by fatman have finally been crowned World Club Cup Champions for the 1st time beating donkeysaint's Suva Kiwis Rugby Club 22 - 56 at the Burrow Stadium in Fiji.
It was an evenly matched Final, with both teams, having a good progression through the knockout Rounds, and the score remained tight pretty much until the half, but the 2nd half was dominated by Lennin's Lads, and the final score showed that the Bolsheviks, were deserved 1st Time Champions.
Congratulations to donkeysaint for another great campaign, just coming up short at the end, and a big well done 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 Hercufleas United manager robelix who has been competing in the WCC since at least season 11, and always takes part in the comp regardless of the quality of the team, back in Season 12 he was Cup Runner Up, so has great pedigree and it is managers like him that have been the backbone of this comp for years.
So I am proud to announce this season's Iorwerth Award goes to;
WCC XLVII IORWERTH AWARD
Hercufleas United: Manager robelix
This also means that the winners will take part in the WCC Masters in the next week or so, over 2 Legs.
