Cole Keith = probably Keith COLE :?:

NO, it is actually Cole KEITH

18' - TRY! Canada's Cole Keith powers his way across the line and with the conversion, Canada are now up 14-0. #WorldRugbyU20s

It`s been announced and the rumors are true. This is going to be interesting. Modebadze at wing and Matiashvili at fullback is going to be interesting to watch. Kvirikashvili isn`t on the bench either. Another youngster, Kveseladze is.

That will be an interesting match to watch. Very interesting back line.

They will be better than our old backs i hope.

Also of interest is that 8 in the squad are from Didi10, including seven in backline!

I don't know any of the Georgian players, can any of the Georgians give me a rough idea how close to your best side this is/where most the players play rugby? Thx!

Georgia's whole pack play in England or France. The backs are domestic with a couple of exceptions.

The 10 Canada has picked is poor. Hopefully Kacharava's handling doesn't let Georgia down. The Lelos should be favored.

Thanks. Unfortunately our biggest strength is our back line, but our 10 is abysmal in attack.

It's ok, We don't have a 10 either. We have some people who play the position but I wouldn't call them fly halves. More like Fly-Centers

Damn I like a Georgian victory here, but 16.5 is a huge margin. I'd take Canada against the spread solely as I think our defense in this one will be at least decent.

I agree. There's possibly a subplot of Haig vs Kingsley Jones (former Russia coach) but I don't see a win that big for Georgia personally.

16.5 seems like a lot because we don't score that much tbf. In fact we make simple games very difficult for ourselves due to the way we play. However some fresh talents in our backline make me hopeful.

16.5 sounds like a lot, but Canada did lose to Georgia by 13 in June in Canada (in awful conditions IIRC) and lost to Romania by 16 the following week, despite Romania getting red carded around the 20 minute mark of the game. This does seem like a better Canadian team though, with DTH, Hearn and Paris all in the lineup, but how much will that added firepower matter if they only see limited ball on the back foot?

It's a strong Canadian squad. I don't expect an easy game for Georgia. I am very excited about young Georgian backs though.

Agree with the first part of your judgement. However we do not know how youngsters will play vs very experienced Canadian backs.

Should be a very interesting game. Power forwards vs the skilled backs. If the Georgians play a draw scrum penalties kick to touch game (keep iy away from our backs) we will lose. If they try to spin it around then i think we may have a chance, the weather calls for rain though..

Weather should be nice - no rain.
Once it is decided to have young backs expect an open game.
