The IGTWCC XXII Champion has been crowned with Iron121's Metallist Kharkov claiming their 1st IGTWCC Crown, beating Benji91-123's Hastings Stormers 54 - 17 at Metallist Stadium.

As far as IGTWCC Cup Finals go, it ended up being a fizzer, and ultimately one-sided, as the Stormers took a casual approach to the game, it what was a fairly even match up.

Congrats to both managers for making it through to the Final, and especially to Metallist Kharkov, who had added them name, to a list of the greatest teams in BR History, whom you can see on the Hall Of Fame HERE

Congratulations to all the other winners, who will now be able to represent the IGTWCC in the WCC Masters coming soon.

Next we have "The Laboriose Award", which is awarded to the team or teams 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 the The Laboriose Award goes to La Raille De Besagne manager Bougedelah, who has again this season shown the spirit and passion that I applaud at the highest level.

Bougedelah has played in the IGTWCC regularly since Season 13 (IGTWCC IV), and collected a few trophies along the way, but I think winning the Plate Trophy this season, was a great achievement.

Lastly, the top scorer sheets have also now been updated and you can see the winners of the Top Points and Top Try Scorers  HERE.

You can see the Results on the IGTWCC HERE.

SHIELD - Kinki Dragons (JPN)

Well played to all teams.
