With a time difference between Japan and South Africa of seven hours, how on earth are you going to stay up to date with all the Rugby World Cup action? Thankfully, there’s an app for that! Sports predictor app SUPERBRU provides the perfect excuse to tune into the tournament – in the name of company teambuilding! Here’s how we’re doing just that…
Rugby World Cup 2019 kicks off on Friday, 22 September in Tokyo when the host nation Japan takes on Russia in the opening match. On Saturday, the Boks face off against their nemesis New Zealand in an early tournament super-clash.
Who will win these matches – and the other 48 matches of 2019’s tournaments?
That’s the question we’re posing to our work mates as SA Oil joins the SUPERBRU game! To promote that all-important team spirit – or gees, as it’s known in South African – each of us was set up with an SA Oil SUPERBRU profile that allows us to join in the rugby world cup fever.
In SUPERBRU, you predict the outcome of sports matches – in this case, matches in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. The more accurate you are, the more points you score – see the in-depth SUPERBRU FAQs for more.
We’ve nominated an SA Oil SUPERBRU team captain, who’s going to make sure we all get our picks in on time, and to guide us through the game – any questions on how to play SUPERBRU, and he’s our go-to-guy!
The victor will score a meal voucher to Durban’s famous Japanese restaurant Daruma at the Pearls of Umhlanga. If we can’t go to Japan, we’ll bring a taste of Japan our way!
Why don’t you challenge your own work team to a SUPERBRU challenge? It adds an extra dimension to the Rugby World Cup tournament, gets the chatter going, and generates a bit of buzz in the office (Who are we kidding…it gets pretty competitive!). Login it to SUPERBRU on the web or download the SUPERBRU app to your mobile device and get your game on!
Bringing people together through exercises like these promotes collaboration, which in turn promotes cohesion. The ultimate aim of this – results! Socialising – for example, by chatting over the rugby results – dissolves tension, reduces stress, and thereby increases morale and productivity. And – as our simple SUPERBRU exercise shows – team building doesn’t necessarily have to involve costly, time-consuming activities.
