Romania will come 3rd and will build over the next years and come 2nd again.

If they beat Georgia this Saturday, very likely they'll finish first.

Smart move to nominate young Romanian players and build for the RWC 2023,


Romania will field a very experienced team on Saturday. It worries me, because there will be a lot of youngsters in Georgia squad. Hopefully, they will step up to the very tough task that awaits them this coming weekend.

I still don't know why FRR isn't forcing the clubs to have soume youths on the pitch. The football federation has done that for a few years now and the U20 team has qualified for the U20 Euro for the first time in 20 years.

There's no need to force them. Youngsters play on both Cupa due to NT call ups and many are starters in their teams

I heard that there are no islanders in the Romanian squad. Is that correct? If yes, what is a reason?

Sorry, I just looked at AMZ's post and found out that indeed there are no islanders among oaks.

However I still have a question; why islanders are not in the squad?

Thank you. It is interesting to watch inexperienced fly-half Plai and full-back Melinte.

P.S. Our captain Sharikadze is injured. He will miss the game.

Uff... that's a bloody experienced and tough Romanian team and we go there with kids and players like khmaladze and aptsiauri. If not for players like Beka Gorgadze and Nemso or Abzhandadze, I see us losing.

Gigauri starting over Cheishvili is a big call. The Romanian tight five looks very strong.

Boy oh boy. It's going to be tough out there. Scrums will be the key. Young Georgian props against Romanian veterans. Looking forward to that battle.

Khmaladze is by far the worst player I have Seen playing for Lelos in 20 years. It is risiculous... cant put it into words. Every time he touches the ball something bad happens.
