The IGTWCC XXVI Champion has been crowned with Safe Hands Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers claiming their 4th consecutive IGT World Club Championship, beating qpeace's Beginners Mind RFC 17-34, at the Lowbury Stadium in Scotland.

From the 1st minute of the game, the Geezers were in control scoring an early try, and maintained their strangle hold on the game for the full 80 minutes, adding another title to now make it an unequalled 7 Championships.

This season we have Two recipients of The Laboriose Award, the 1st goes to manager cairnswm who's team Freedom Fighters fought their way from finishing 3rd in Bowl Group 12, to win the Bowl Trophy, which is a great achievement.

The second goes to manager djswannie who competes to win at every occasion, and whether, he gets silverware or not, he is back every season to play in the spirit of the Laboriose...whatever the group or opponents.
