Since there is a thread on Russia rugby, I propose that Georgia has it's own one too

In my opinion, Gorgodze is the best third line of the World.
He does not miss any tackle
It is over-powerful
It was incredibly easy to pass the ball after contact...

Rugby magazine # 1 in France (Midi Olympique), had made its front page on his return to Montpellier after the RWC with the headline: "Dad is back"
Whether with Montpellier or Georgia, when the team have difficulties, it makes a pass at Gorgodze and alone, he gives the whole team forward
Also, Midi Olympique elected this guy as best foreign of the Top14... So ahead legends like George Smith, Joe Van Niekerk, Chris Masoe,

He began rugby at 17! and played his first game with national team at 18!!

Look these 2 videos : he is incredible!

Its worrying for us, but great for Georgia. I am a keen supporter of bringing Georgia into an expanded 6 nations (7 nations.) In my opinion there is no way that they are any worse than us or Scotland and would probably give the others a decent game aswell. I cant see team relishing away trips in Tiblisi.

hooker Jaba Bregvadze may be forced to retire due to a neck injury, very sad for him especially given that he is only 25, and only just won a contract with a top European team in Toulouse

That's a horrible thing to have to come to terms with, especially when he's just 25! Such a shame, was it a really bad injury then?

I've heard it was a serious injury to his cervical vertebra (that bump at the bottom of the neck and right at the top of the spine), his career is threatened by this and he will get official medical advice in a few weeks

he could have played a part in Georgia future as although he still needed improving in a number of areas, especially scrummaging and lineout throwing, around the pitch he was very good, and was only going to improve as he just found himself a top European club in Toulouse where had impressed Guy Novès early on and earned a longer contract from his initial one as injury cover

he was mainly selected for his work around the field, and was an extremely lightweight hooker (the lightest of any at the World Cup), his highlights include scoring the winning try against Russia last year, and playing a part in the move that resulted in Gorgodze's try against Romania at the World Cup

(Bregvadze's run which gave Georgia momentum to score against Romania at the World Cup, go to 17 seconds in the video)

there are rumours that in the November internationals Georgia are going to face Fiji on the 24th of November

hopefully there will be the strongest team, Jgenti would annihilate Campese Ma'afu at scrum :lol:

also there could be a match against Japan the week before, and also possibly the week before that as well

you not keen on playing Fiji?

I like most think it would be good if both teams are at full strength, but given that is highly unlikely it could be a waste of time

I doubt he will ever play for the national side -_-

why do you doubt Jgenti will ever play for the Lelos? he's been great in the Top 14, and has improved his discipline

Its about time! we've been waiting for some time :cool:

he had a decent game, didn't get much opportunity with ball in hand, but made some hard tackles, especially one on Chris Masoe who was running at full pace from receiving a kick, I really rate Kolelishvili, he will be Georgia's first choice flanker no doubt now
