The correct name is World Rugby Under 20 Championship. And there is a second division called World Rugby Under 20 Trophy. "World Cup" doesn't exist.

My mistake for subject heading.
All the teams and squads are on the world rugby website.
Georgia has a few under 18 players in there team. But it looks really good.
Aprasidze and Abzhandadze are going to be very influential to see if they can beat Ireland in pool play.Couple of props from French clubs there as well. Good to see Marjanishvili back he got some real pace and looking forward to seeing him play.The halfback Alania is a bit of a surprise as he was not first choice in there under 18 team but i liked the look of him,he reminds me of another Aprasidze with great footwork and pace.
There depth might be tested a little if injuries start occuring,but players like Papidze,Gogichashvili,Saghinadze,Marchaladze,Aprasidze,Abzhandadze were brilliant last year and if they can mould the team around them,then they could surprise a few teams.

- half of the team played last year U20WC : U20WC games played(started)

- backline looks a bit less experienced and the squad includes 4 U18 players!
- notables foreign based omitted players includes La Rochelle prop Jemal Shatirishvili and prop/lock Lasha Macharashvili (Stade Montois)

I expected to see: brothers Narimanidze (both of them can play as wingers and fullbacks), Peranidze ( can play #9 and#10). Doubt that Alania is ready to play on such level.

Is Dzagnidze winger for under 20 team related to Georgian player that played for Georgia and maybe also U.S.S.R or Soviet union, before countries seperated?
