I believe this will be only the 2nd time Georgia has visited South Africa? Looking forward to it. First time in an age the Bokke are going to jog out.

Comment has been that SA will be putting out a full strength side which would be prudent though I would expect some time will be given to fringe players and I expect some of our front liners returning from injury will be eased in. Should still be very exciting.

2x South Africa tests? Not a good idea.

Scotland look like their entire summer is cancelled.


Be amazed if they can still fly to Georgia and put out a team.
