IGT World Club Champion Crowned

posted 20 Dec 2010, 23:03 by Site Admin

The IGTWCC finals have now been completed, and the site has been updated. 

In the all Italian final at La Fortezza, away team Stella Verde overcame La Banda Bonnot in a wet weather game 0-14 to clinch the IGT World Club Championship. Stella Verde now move onto the WCC Masters to play Bugia Nen in the Cup competition on Thursday. The Italian teams have dominated the finals in both the WCC and the IGTWCC this season, and will be hoping that this continues moving forward into Season 11.

In the 3rd place play-off the East Perth Pumas narrowly lost to the Frodsham Koala Bears.

The plate saw Cill Dara RFC hosting another Italian team La Colonna Durruti at the Oak Park Stadium. However the home fans will be disappointed after seeing their team go down 17-26, in a game where the Devils aggressive style might have cost them dearly. La Colonna Durruti will not have to travel to far to face yet another Italian team Stargazers in the WCC Plate Masters final at the Nightingales Arena, the scene of many a massacre, which La Colonna will be hoping to avoid.

In the 3rd place play-off Grizzly Storm mauled Southwell RFC 66-0.

Fookers Stadium was the venue for the Bowl final, and it's fans saw home team Dedard Fookers victorious over Irish counterparts the Cork Coyotes 21-12. In the 2nd of the finals that saw 2 teams from the same nation battling it out for glory, the other countries will start to become nervous that the nations name does not begin with an "I". Next season we will all be wary of teams from Iceland, Iran, Iraq and India. The Fookers will face the Askam Exiles in Thursday's WCC Masters Bowl.

Spanish team Euskadi Rugby finished strong to claim the 3rd place beating the Pacific Lions 19-0.

Finally in the Shield the Adelaide Marauders held onto a 2 point margin against the Dallas Waratahs for what seemed an eternity, to win 22-24 at the Waratah Stadium. The Marauders kept running hard but struggled to penetrate the Waratahs defense until the dying minutes of the match, and they will need to re-think their attacking style when they face Euskadi Rugby at home in the WCC Masters Shield.

In the 3rd place match, The Crooked Island Exiles beat Bedrock 18-8.

In other news Piece Mawby of the Frodsham Koala Bears finished as the competition Top Points Scorer with 237 points, with Cam Wylam also of the Bears taking out the top try scorer award.

As mentioned the WCC Masters finals will take place this Thursday, so good luck to all the teams as they strive to be crowned the inaugural WCC Masters.

For those teams who have registered for Season 11, the fixtures and groups will be entered shortly and I will contact you with all the information in the next few days.

That just leaves me to say a BIG thankyou to ALL the teams who have competed in the competition this year, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
