I seem to remember them kicking the ball to the Scottish backs for them to run in tries one after the other. In the 2nd half Georgia kept the ball in the forwards and were a match for Scotland. In fact the forwards would be a match for most opponents, so I hope they can keep their heads cool and play to their strengths against Wales.

Although Haig says he is going for a win against Wales, which is very commendable, Georgia would continue to gain repect if they lost by a small margin. I'm not sure what would constitute a small margin - maybe 15 points?

He said he is going to win the match vs Wales.

I dont know how realistic is that but im waiting of tier 1 scull many years, (after 2013).

This match vs canada was definitely possitive but i saw many misstakes in defence. Canadians were using these misstakes and 2 tries from their 3 was completely on Georgian misstakes and excellent performance from Canadian N9.

Eales will not forgive such misstakes. Lelos must be more concentrated next week.


This is the right attitude to have from the coach, and if he's filtered it down to the players then he's done his job right. I think too often in rugby teams and coaches go into matches believing they are going to lose, and thus the effort isn't always there. It's more about containing the opposition than competing.

Greatest achievement for Georgia: finally they find a replacement for Kvirikasvili at 15! Maybe Haig should read this forum, because maaaany posters ask for Matiasvili for long time.And still think that Nemsadze should captain Georgia. Nothing against Sharikadze but Nemsadze just looks like a natural option.

I think its more about the journey than the destination.

In that if they were ahead in the second half, or within a score at 70 mins they could concede three at the end and people be more impressed than if they went 20 points down in the first 10 minutes then battled slowly back to lose by 10 points or so.

Do you get what I mean?

Canada and Georgia are too far apart so the game didn't affect the rankings.

So I guess HonG KonG lost some points and went down.



TIL Hong Kong was ahead of Canada in the rankings :|

In the past 4 years, Canada has defeated Portugal (Nov 2013), Namibia (Nov 2014), Georgia (Sep 2015) and Russia (June 2016).

Now they have lost to Georgia (twice this year), Romania, Japan, Uruguay, Samoa, Fiji and Tonga.

It's probably Sharikadzes English skills. Otherwise you'd definitely have Nemsadze or Katcharava ahead of him.

The roman helmet with whom Kacharava has been awarded has a meaning (maybe concerning Italy?) or is it just a sort of joke?

It has nothing to do with Italy.

Kacharava gained his 100th cap and teammates put a Centurion helmet on him. He is extremely experienced and has played for Lelos starting XV for last decade. David Kacharva is "Centurion" (100+ cap)
