Gotta feeling both Wales and Australia will test their squad depth against the Georgians so you never know... also the Georgia vs Fiji game should be really competitive... one of the many pool games I'm really looking forward to.

So, Georgia made a really strong comeback, from 5-20 min.65 to 24-20 at the final whistle.
Too many handling errors, but it was a pretty much second string Georgia side who played his first warm up game. - starting front rower are born 1998-2000-1996! the backrow : 1998-1996-1996 !
This result show that the hypothetic involvement of a georgian side in Pro14 may be possible.

The really bad news of the day is the injury of flanker Giorgi Tsutskiridze, who will miss the RWC.

Really fast ball carrier, and a real razor in defence...

Wow, I thought Gorgodze was done with international duty! Is he covering for someone who's injured?
