Superbru has more than half a million users for its sports predictor online game

With the sixth annual IRB Junior World Championship just around the corner, we've teamed up with social sports prediction game Superbru to get fans even more excited about the tournament.

Superbru, which has more than half a million users, allows sports fans to predict the outcomes and scores of matches for bragging rights. Players are invited to predict winners and winning margins of each fixture in a tournament, and are rewarded with points for accuracy. They can compete in private leagues against friends and colleagues over the course of the tournament.

The game is designed to build engagement in a sport or tournament, whilst users enjoy a fun, competitive and social game experience.

"We're delighted to have Superbru on board with us for the sixth IRB Junior World Championship," said Tournament Director Philippe Bourdarias.

"The game is really exciting, and has proved very popular with Rugby fans during the Super Rugby and other major competitions around the world. Thousands of people have already signed up to play IRB Junior World Championship 2013 on Superbru, and I expect even more to get involved as we get closer to kick-off in this great competition."

The IRB Junior World Championship 2013 kicks off on 5 June and runs until 23 June in Nantes, La Roche-sur-Yon and Vannes in the north west of France.

Since 2008, the IRB Junior World Championship has provided the springboard for more than 200 players to graduate to the Test arena, including 2013 British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton.

The premier age-grade tournament broke attendance and broadcasting records in 2012, when 35,000 people attended the final at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town to see hosts South Africa beat New Zealand in a thrilling final that was watched in 165 countries around the world.
