The IGTWCC XVII Champion has now been crowned with RazorbladeYfronts claiming his 3rd IGT World Club Championship, beating the Reading Royals 61-30 at Aurag Stadium. With muzza trying the old "substitution switcheroo tactic", he must have felt it was going ok at half-time, whilst only trailing by 14 points against the Brazilian Giants, but Khan once again proved too strong piling on another 25 points in the 2nd half, to win the game comfortably in the end.

Congratulations to both teams, and it was a splendid effort by the Reading Royals, who knocked over some higher ranked opposition on his way to the final.

Congratulations also go to all the other victorious teams, trophies have been awarded, and the final positions look like this.

Next we have "The Laboriose Award", which is awarded to the team who I think has shown commitment and effort, and hard work "Above and Beyond" throughout the IGTWCC Tournament. Laboriose is a latin word which is defined as: laboriously, with great effort.

This season there are 2 Recipients of the award. The 1st trophy goes to Delta manager Negative,who has been an IGTWCC regular since way back in Season 14. He has always shown all the qualities I look for in a recipient of the award, whether winning trophies or getting knocked out early, every season he is back, and he and many managers like him, are the reason the IGTWCC continues to be among the best 3rd Party Comps on BR.

The 2nd recipient is Reading Royals manager muzza, who put in an outstanding effort in this unusual season, and making the most of his opportunities when he had them, in a Cup finals series that he most probably should have gone out in early. To make the Final, and then to put up a great effort against the Top Team was fantastic, and exemplifies what I admire most in managers on this great game.

The IGTWCC XVII Laboriose Winners
Delta - Manager: Negative
Reading Royals - Manager: muzza
