The IGTWCC XXVII Champion has been crowned with Koodoo Rand Diamond Geezers claiming their 5th consecutive IGT World Club Championship, beating muzza's Royal Phoenix Redemptionists 0 - 40, at the Ash Bowl Stadium in Zimbabwe.

Muzza's Redemptionists held strong until the 13th minute of the game, when the Geezers Mambo Brazzoli cruised over for the 1st try, and the rest as they say is history, and it means that Geezer's added another title to now make it an unequalled 8 Championships.

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 we have Two recipients of The Laboriose Award, the 1st goes to manager Neme who's team Ravello Patriots have been around since the 1st official season of the WCC (Now called the IGTWCC), and actually won a Bowl Runner Up trophy in Season 2. Neme has competed regularly since that season, and has made a rapid rise back up the groups to finish 4th in this Seasons Cup.

The second goes to manager Skandalous 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. This season his Understayers just missed out on a trophy, but managers like Skandalous are the reason that these comps have been so successful for so many seasons  :D
