This seasons "Laboriose Award" (see note below) was awarded to Rugga's Birmingham Tigers for good sportsmanship in this seasons IGTWCC, which included drawing his semi-final and then losing the fixture on count back to half time scores to the eventual IGTWCC Champions Rag Ragbi Klub, which is a heartbreaking way to go out of the competition.

Note: Laboriose is a latin word which is defined as: laboriously, with great effort. The recipient of this award may not be an eventual winner in Cup, Plate, Bowl or Shield, but will be a team that has played well throughout the tournament, and has displayed qualities that I respect throughout the tournament.

Finally this means that the following teams will play for the WCC V Masters on Thursday.

NB: Due to the fact that wing's Shao Lin Sharks were victorious in both the WCC & IGTWCC Bowl Competitions, he is automatically awarded the WCC Masters Bowl.

WCC MASTERS CUP
Frodsham Koala Bears (ENG) v Rab Ragbi Klub (CRO)

WCC MASTERS PLATE
Guarani Divineia (BRA) v Atletico Beer (ITA)

WCC MASTERS BOWL CHAMPION
