I agree that injuries can't be used as an excuse for Georgia. For the last 5 years the call has been to challenge Italy to show why there should be a case for promotion and relegation in the 6N. Now they've got their chance. They've got no choice to play with who's available to prove their point. You want to make your case? Then do whatever you have to to make it. They've got to treat this game almost like a World Cup final.

Yeah, but what has a reseller platform like viagogo to do with how many tickets are available?

Here the real situation:

Looks great, but they haven't opened all blocks.

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.

Lelos squad for Italy, from GRU website:
http://site.rugby.ge/en/news-view/?news ... $TitleUrl$

Of note, Kubriashvili in the starting line up, Lomidze in second row, Sutiashvili on the bench. Glad to see Sharikadze and Koshadze back in the squad after injuries. Curious to see what Dzneladze can do. No Abjandadze for this game.

It will be a great game.

Nerves will play a big part.

If Italy stay calm and play to their potential, it will be 20+ points win.

I feel sorry for Georgia as against anyone else but Germany I really do shout for the Lelos

There is also a danger that Georgia "really" want this game, and rightly so. Italy "really" want this game and "need" this game.

This game has been built up so much the it is an explosion ready to happen and just needs a spark. The big advantage Italy have is that they have really got control of their aggression, in terms of being hard done by in a game. Hence they don't get yellow cards like they did 15 years ago.

Depending on the ref, if Georgia start badly and have decisions go against them I can see them losing the heads and cards will follow.

If Georgia were playing England or Ireland this wouldn't matter as I don't think psychologically they think they could currently beat England or Ireland so emotions wouldn't run so high as to push them over the edge.

Win or lose, Italians know that their place in 6N is assured, so there won't be any pressure from that angle. This game is more to see where Georgia stand to Italy in terms of performance on the pitch. First 10 or 15 minutes will be crucial for Georgia. If they can play solid defense and try to hold on to the ball as much as possible, it could be a tight game. And yes, discipline will be of utmost importance.

If Georgia can win this game handily it should put a lot of pressure on Italy. Personally Italy should be removed from the 6 nations and be placed into the Rugby European cup, adding to its value and bring into it more competition. Being in a tourney with Georgia, Russia, Romania, Germany, Belgium and Spain will do more for Italian Rugby then being spanked by the big boys every year.

Problem is that they are more than happy to play against and get spanked by big boys than to play in REC. (I cannot blame them for that). On a rare occasion, they do get a win. Just the idea of playing in REC would make Italians nauseated.

Then they wouldn't get any of the 6N money, therefore their Pro14 sides would collapse alongside their academy structures.

The idea is to lift other nations not to destroy Italian rugby.

Italy earn more than 20M € every year thanks to their Tier 1 status (TV revenue and ticketing). I think this sums up the big issue.

I believe missing Parisse will do them a lot of good in this game.

Parisse hasn't had a good game for Italy for about 2 years.

Actually cost Italy the game against Scotland this year

Oh Ferrari and Lovotti are in trouble!!! :D

Nariashvili and Kubriashvili will give them a hard time. Both of them are Ferraris of 1st row. :D

Sounds slightly exaggerated, will ask a Georgian mate who travels there for the game, how many he estimates, after the game.

Agree, his contribution is limited for years already. If I'd be O'Shea I'd pick another captain too.

having a decent away crowd might be a stronger argument than the result. I hope Georgia impresses on and outside of the field.

Anyone know what time this is on and where to watch it? Sadly it’s the only game involving a T1 country that DAZN isn’t showing.
