iPhone app news: Get in to RWC spirit with Runnin' Rugby

Aussie rugger star Drew Mitchell launches an iOS app with a little help from Stephen Fry. You may be disinclined to help out the Wallabies during RWC 2011 so it's just as fun to deliberately injure him and have him carried off

With the Rugby World Cup now in full swing, a new iPhone game has launched featuring one of the Australian team's biggest stars, Drew Mitchell.

Drew Mitchell's Runnin' Rugby for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch sees you take control of the Australian winger, side-step tackles, make successful kicks and avoid injury at the hands of All Blacks out to cripple you.

Players will be able to obtain multiple bonuses, and submit their high scores to compete with other players on Apple's Game Center platform.

The game features 72 cartoon style, joystick-controlled levels and is available to buy from the App Store for just 69p.

"Players must help Drew steer around all those unfriendly forwards, they want to injure him." says the press release. "Those little scrumhalves aren't his friends either. He definitely wants to avoid the pot-bellied loosehead prop!"

"If they knock you out, the medical team will be on field to carry Drew off on the Cart of Death. Avoid the animated version of this infamous actual event at all costs."

Or, if you're an England fan, those grizzly injuries might be a source of amusement.

The game, which comes from Stephen Fry's app company SamFry Limited, is the first for an Aussie rugby player and may prove to be Mitchell's only success this September, following a shock World Cup defeat by Ireland. Mr Fry himself, we're told, is still "fiercely loyal to England"
