British do not play in open arenas like this.


That wasn't an arena, it was uncle Bill's cornfield. I've been saying this for about ten years but the practice of playing international tests at a crap community pitch should have ended long ago.

It was 15 and raining. It's rugby not tennis.

Also every single stadium in the premiership is open.

Uh...I've played in the Snow. Argentina XVs played in the Snow against Canada during the ARC. Rugby is a man's game. The end.

If it is good let's suggest to the World Rugby to have all tournaments in snow.

P.S. By the way women also play rugby

Do you understand the expression? Our Lady Eagles are some hard MFers. Alev Kelter played DI Hockey and Soccer at U Wisconsin. Definitely a better athlete from me and harder than me. Eagle River is cold.

Rugby is played in the winter is most places. The six nations, which Georgia is keen to join, is played through Feburary in open stadiums, infect there were big complaints when Wales wanted to close the top of Millenium Stadium for a game this year. I don't understand your complaints, can you name a sport outside of tennis and baseball that stops because it's a touch rainy ?

Exactly ...is June so the weather should be better so where is their fault? I must talk with the Romanian Union to make a complain about big humidity&heat from Japan. They should move the World Cup in perfect lab conditions in Tbilisi.

Exactly, plus rugby was initially developed to be played in the winter of Western Europe and there is always going to be an element of luck in the conditions - unless of course you have a covered stadium. The stadium in Calgary was far from the best but it was I am sure not a typical June day in the city, just bad luck. Do we have to always assume that Test match rugby has to be played in warm sunshine with no wind with a perfect dry surface now?

Plus, international rugby has been played in some horrific conditions in the past,

see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ewq-hMcAuHQ , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ0hQu8CXx4

And more recently I give you the ARC 2014 game New Zealand v Argentina in Napier, where NZ showed you just get on with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpXcOQPnR_8

We should not blame the weather we have not played a good dominating game since Fiji last june. Even Samoa in november was a bad game.. we were lucky to win that one. Ok the weather is bad but where js our Georgian mentality keep the ball in hand make some carries play pick and go and dominated the game! We were not able to do that so dont blame the weather, i've seen Georgia playing better in Siberia in the winter. And lets not forget this Canadian team was far from optimal! And we could not even maull them from 5 meters serval times so common the weather is nothing more than just a factor we played horrible!

Both teams played horribly. Weather was a big factor in this. I agree about Georgian mauls though. What happened? Is it Brad Harris's fault or what? Ever since they hired him, I'm not impressed. It'll be interesting to see how they perform in much better conditions(hopefully) in the USA.

Yes both played horrible but Canada has an excuse they are the 23th in the world and there team was far from optimal! What is our excuse the weather? I wasnt expecting to see flying Georgian backs in that weather eather but why couldn't we dominate up front? That is what concerns me the most!

In regards to the weather. It was going to be shit. They played in Calgary in June. I've never gone that far north but in Central Montana it snows from October to Mid July in most parts of the mountains. Calgary being 400 Miles north of Bozeman I'd expect it probably is only dry from Mid July to Mid September. I mean, that's why they held the Winter Olympics there. There's really only a few places in Canada with "Amazing" weather because of how far north it is.

That weather was more a Prairie storm front and less typical Calgary weather. What kind of frozen wasteland do people think we live in up here in Alberta? Edmonton and Calgary are both typically hot, dry and beautiful in the summer months. We do have some bad stretches of weather throughout but pretty much everywhere on earth does. Last weekend just happened to be one of those times. I know it went from like +26C, sunny and beautiful on Thursday to rainy/windy/storming +13C on Friday up here in Edmonton.

Snow is usually done by May, with a bit that will melt off in a day here and there. June is typically very warm with average temperatures in the 20s.

They held the Winter Olympics in Calgary in the winter. Calgary also isn't in the mountains. They used to hold Churchill Cup matches in June in Edmonton, which is even further north than Calgary) and the weather was fine.

As far as the wind is concerned, I've played in some shit conditions in El Paso, so that wasn't much. I just find it interesting that Georgia played poor against Anscombe's B side. And we're out here bitching about "open arenas." Yes, it looked like a High School pitch. But the playing surface looked pretty good to me. That's the only thing to be concerned about to me.

Yea, sorry mate. Americans aren't exactly reliable when evaluating climate.. :D

Seriously though, I don't think anyone is bringing weather as an excuse for Lelos terrible outing. In fact every Georgian poster is pointing out how bad our form has been since last November. And holly hell have we criticized the coaches.

I don't expect... no, I'm certain we wont be any better against the US, We'll have ton of knock ons, infringements, stupid kicks, missed Free kicks, Bekoshvili, and the Maul which was always our strength but has completely collapsed since Didier Bes left.

atop all that we have the most stubborn coaching staff who refuse to make much needed changes for god knows what reason.







P.S the weather in Canada was terrible.

Canadians said that weather conditions is a reason why stream was so awful. But anyways not broadcasting TV signal is unspeakable.
Canada should be focused on popularizing rugby and TV is a main thing they should focus.

I hope canada is not becoming t3 country and remains as high performance T2.

Mate instead of Canada try to use "Canadian Rugby Union" or they think we hate Canada.

English isn't like Georgian, everything needs to be super specific or it might come off as rude and harsh.

I know it's annoying but English language simply isn't kind for Georgian speakers. We come off as rude or harsh even when we don't mean to ;)

That's why we get pages full of arguments even when there's nothing to argue.

Nice job twisting the words mate and that's the final word i have with you: stop being arrogant to others and you will not have pages full of arguments. :))
