The 2013 IRB Junior World Rugby Trophy was the sixth annual international rugby union competition for under-20 national teams, second-tier world championship.

The event was held in Temuco, Chile and was organized by rugby's governing body, the International Rugby Board.[1][2] The tournament was originally to be held in Antofagasta, but that city pulled out of hosting only a few months before the tournament.[3]
