RE DECIDER: 19 MARCH * ROMANIA - GEORGIA

Postby FLIDTA RISXVA » Mon, 13 Mar 2017, 07:50

WHEN the game actually kicks off?

To my best knowledge @ 15.00 ROM = 17.00 GEO

Any recent changes?

As per http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/competitions/ ... mpionships

19/03/2017 - 15:00 *** probably CET ?

I think chances are 40% to 60% in favor of Lelos, considering Georgia's experimental mix of veterans and U20 players.

Chances are 50-50, especially because there will be youngsters against what I am guessing a strong Romanian side. I like Tabidze and Bekoshvili, and they did well so far, but if Chilachava or Peikrishvili aren't called up, it is a big mistake. Georgia's main weapon is the scrum and the youngsters may struggle against a strong Romanian front row which wouldn't be a good thing for Georgia in this game.

I am quite optimistic about this match. This will be huge experience for youngster against some toughest team in REC.

To be sure: Georgia's goal for this REC also for 2018 and 2019 is to create depth and prepare for 2019 where our goal is to win 2 matches and hope for miracle in 3'd match.

Of course Milton will play for victory against Romania but it is not big deal if we lose.

Georgia must prepare for Summer tests in north America and Argentina match that must be used for preparation of the team.
We have to play Wales i guess in 2018 November tests + 1 Pacific team and Japan? or 2nd Pacific team.
Scotland is planning to Visit Georgia in 2019 warm up series on their way to Japan, and that will also be very good experience + Scotland will become 1st T1 nation who visits Georgia.

So waiting for this Match against Romania. They have pretty strong squad and our main opponent in REC. I guess Lelos will win with a close score line.

Romania is preparing for this match, the watched yesterday's match vs Russia and they will prepare.
Milton is also preparing and this will be the REC Final. Very Interesting Match.

There is another big motivation for Georgia - in case of victory, they will move to 11th place of the World Rankings.

I think chances are 50-50, Romanians are probably pissed following the humiliation they got in Tbilisi and will fight hard to redeem themselves, I think it will be a close call and will be really disappointed if it is not.

If a 38-9 win of Georgian best squad of the moment over an experimental side with plenty of debuts at test level it is called humiliation, than how it is called a 43-16 Scottish win versus best Georgian available squad?

Italy will lose by more than 27 points in Murrayfield this weekend. I think losses of over 40 points are required for a "humiliation" and even then if the two sides have comparable resources.

This is the biggest rugby game in Europe this weekend for me with the 6N havin already been decided.

Except in Africa where a 5 point win is a "humiliation", "massacre", slaughter" etc ;)

My friend from Bucharest wrote that the cheapest ticket costs 18 euros!
In Krasnoyarsk the ticket for the Russian national team costs 150-200 rubles - 2 - 2.5 euros (2014). And in Sochi for free ...

For the match against the "Connacht" - 150 rubles, 2 euros.
In Georgia tickets for a match from Russia cost about 10 lari or 3.5 euros.

Europe, хуле ! :shock:

And your problem is? Everybody wants the costly ones, sold out in hours :) People have money to afford is one of the advantages of not being tied economically with Russia, as in the past.

This will be interesting, I wonder if we'll still play that new style or go back to old school pick N Geo. Also looking forward to forum fight between supporters after the match. As is the custom.

Is the game being played in Tbilisi or Bucharest? I reckon the home team will have an advantage.

As far as I know, tickets with seats (roughly EUR 33 with access to VIP tent or EUR 16 normal 1st stand) yes, already sold out.

You can find tickets to second stand and behind the posts and probably one can find in the day of the match such tickets (2nd stand aprox. EUR 12 , behind posts EUR 8) and these tickets will be allocated in the day of the match.

This autumn actual stadium will be demolished and a new one will be built in its place with 10.000 seats, all covered, pitch heating, restaurant, hotel, conference rooms and other facilities. It is scheduled to be ready in 2019.

Bitter loss I'd say and somewhat disastrous :) However still it would have hurt more if it were Romania or god forbid Russia (never happening) doing it, getting blown away by someone who is considered your equal, by rankings/perception/etc, stings way more than by a team to whom you are more or less expected to lose.

The decision to go with that team in Georgia was disastrous.One of the things which i respect to Georgia is they where very professional from this point of view. But expressions like "humiliation" are more from football area, and it looks that many Georgian fans are having this heritage. But i'm sure this thing will change in time :). Anyway the game from Sunday should be a cracker. I m expecting a very hard&open game of rugby.

I just hope the commentary will be in English and not Romanian. I would like to hear and understand what is being said.
