n a match that some would say was already over by half-time, Hornet JK's Steelhead RFC have beaten Beginners Mind RFC 38-23 to claim their 1st IGT World Club Championship at the Haig-Brown Memorial Stadium.

With a 26-3 lead at half-time, we must give credit to qpeace's boys who fought back valiantly to score 20 points in the 2nd half, but it was a case of too little too late for the 2 time former Champions......I am sure they will be back next season.

So congratulations to Hornet JK for a fine and well deserved win, and his team can finally be called IGT World Club Champions for Season 21. 

Well done to all teams on another great IGTWCC Season.

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.

The IGTWCC XI Laboriose Award - Woodward Chile (CHL)

This season I have awarded the trophy to Woodward Chile Manager manager Woodward, who since the 2nd Season of the IGTWCC has shown all the qualities I look for in a recipient of the award.....and the following achievements is a great example of this;

IGTWCC CHAMPION - Twice (S11 & S12)
IGTWCC CUP RUNNER UP - Twice (S13 & S15)
IGTWCC CUP 3RD PLACE - Twice (S14 & S16)
IGTWCC CUP 4TH PLACE - Three times (S17 & S19 & S21)

I hope his continues to grace us with his presence in the IGTWCC & WCC, and I look forward to having him back next season.

This also means that the following teams have qualified to play against the winners of the WCC for the WCC Masters.

CUP - Steelhead RFC (CAN)
PLATE - Cipete Bulldogs (AUS) 
BOWL - Nafta (ITA)
SHIELD - Team Gomez (IVC)
VASE - Mount Reynold (ITA)
PLAQUE - Ab Antiquo Ab Integro (BRA)

Also the winner of the WCC Cup Masters will play the winner of the Blackout Rugby International Championship (BRIC) for ultimate bragging rights.
