Will Georgia be able to put out close to a full-strength team?

If Peikrishvili,Tkhilaishvili and Mchedlidze are not able to play, then it is not a full strength team but close to it. In recent game Gachechiladze scored three tries for Enisei. He seems to be in great shape. Why wasn`t he selected for the tour is beyond me.

Mchedlidze is in Argentina so he probably he will play. Peikrishvili is absent but Chilachava is whit the squad imo you can hardy call this team not full strenght.

The correct spelling should be strength ;) :thumbup: but all in all, this should be an exciting match. Im rooting for the Georgians.

Peikrishvili is absent


To me a full strength team implies that Every single first choice player is available. I'm sorry it is simply no the case here. If Mchedlidze (who may or may not play), Tkhilaishvil and Peikrishvil are not playing, I don`t call it the full strength Georgia. In addition, if Bekoshvili is playing, the fact that it`s not full strength team becomes even more painfully obvious. Not that it would matter against Argentina anyway. Full or not full, the end result will be the same.

best team is the available team and there's no such a thing as you describe to have every single first choice player available, injuries happens.

I think, it will take a while before tier 2 and 3 nations field full strength squads. In the case of Kenya, 2 players in Kevin Maasai and Biko Adema will be absent

because their employers refused to grant them a Saturday off.

Unless rugby is professionalized in t2 and 3 countries, we will only be left to fielding the best available players since rugby is just a hobby per say. Other

proffessions such as being an Accountant or a 3D Animator will always take precedence over rugby.

I wrote "full strength" not "best team available", two different things. And even "best team available" is debatable, since we have Gachechiladze in great shape not selected and Kolelishvili(who hasn't played season anywhere and needs time to get back in shape) playing.

Oh OK, so I suppose, after you'll lose the game you'll claim it wasn't the first team , right?

NO! it's obviously the ref. He's not gonna ref the scrums well and we'll lose because of him.

Georgian staff should play it smart and steal reds and yellows from the refs dressing room before the kickoff.

Where is Aseishvili? He disappeared after Canada game. No news of him being injured. Both Chilachava and Peikrishvili get injured on this tour(GRU page mentioned that it will be game time decision whether Peikrishvili will sub for Bekoshvili) and the 4th choice tighthead prop is about to start against Argentina. Hold on tight. It's going to be a wild one. Oh well... at least Mchedlidze is back in the squad.

They changed it. Now it's Lomidze starting at 8 and Giorgadze is inserted at 6. Bitadze is not playing.

This lineup doesn't look to good for Georgia, some of your strongest areas 1st & 3rd rows looks softer this time. But if Vito is back strong after the injury he can give you that extra aggressiveness in the rucks. Definitely you'll need this against Argies if you want to compete.Good luck because looks like a very tough test!

PS. Now 3-row looks better :)

You got it. Kolelishvili didn't look too good last week against USA which is not surprising considering it was his first game on any level in months. I am happy That Georgia is playing tier1 nation, but this line up combined with tiredness and paying very strong Argentina hungry for a win , promises not a very pleasant afternoon for Georgia. Still I hope that the boys can do their best to stay in the game for as long as they can. There won't be a shortage of passion from them. That's for sure.
