The IGTWCC XXIX Champion has been crowned with Safe Hands Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers claiming their 6th IGT World Club Championship, beating qpeace's Beginners Mind RFC 26 - 10, at the Old Mine Stadium in Zimbabwe.

In a reasonably close game, in finals terms, the Geezers applied pressure for the entire game, and in the end, with an advantage of energy, there were just simply too strong

However both managers should be congratulated on fine seasons.

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 recipient of The Laboriose Award, is Highlandbill who not only won the Plate, but also backed it up winning the Bowl Trophy . He and managers like him are the reason that this comp going has been going since the early days, and I am delighted to award the trophy in addition for his dedication to compete season after season.
