Good weather!

Lucaci and Samoa are both injured. Coste was out injured for 2 years (!) he barely made it back two months ago and was called up immediately.

Coste is a very good player but he came only for Germany game. For me he should be a a starter especially against a physical side like Georgia.I hope we will have him for the rest of the games.
Lucaci is in recovery after a nasty injury, Samoa played his first game after injury last weekend against Cluj.
Also Nistor is missing. The back row stocks are really depleted without Macovei, Lucaci, Gorcioaia, Nistor, Ursache.
Good weather, it should be a much better game than last time in Tbilisi.

I dobt know, it was pretty entertaining game last time. D

Macovei and Lucaci are first choice flankers and Vlad Nistor is best N8 from Oaks.
Van Heerden and Poparlan can handle 2nd row without Coste.

Will be a good match...

We are fine on locks, back row is the problem. To many absences.
My favourite backrow will be Macovei, Gorcioaia&Ursache with Lucaci at the bench(or Lucaci in and Gorcioaia on the bench).

Romania must win with bonus (5-0) to conquer the Championship, right?

Yes and a draw is enough to retain Antim Cup. We have 2 trophies for this game :).

I read some time ago that Vlaicu does not fly for the International matches outside of Rom due to aerophobia. How does he sort this out for this particular clash?

I'm confused. How can you have a final when the league hasn't finished yet? Spain could take the automatic spot..so would it not be Spain v Georgia in the final?

Is Kakovin already out of Squad? Obviously Nariashvili in no1 for now, and Asieshvili is very good as successor , but I see Vasil in the main Squad of Racing for every game in TOP-14.

Its also going for Kaulashvili to be naturalized and played for France, isnt it?

is Fercu not Vlaicu and he doesn't fly on very long trips like New Zealand. He flies in Europe frequently. Odd not to know this but still making "informed" comments about Romania :)

First is a match for Antim Cup:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antim_Cup

Romania can win REC with an offensive BP win so that's why is a final. Here is the standing, nothing to do with RWC qualification which is another standing table:

OMG! Thanks mate! It was my fault. I definitely meant Fercu instead of Vlaicu. Sorry....

Maybe it is just the wine for the third half :D
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

No GEO squad tonight -- with RE permission

Hence, ROM can ALSO delay THEIR ANNOUNCEMENT until 24 hours before kick-off
