So the Didi10 final will be Jiki vs Batumi May 14. New champion will be crowned and according to what GRU president mentioned few weeks ago, will receive a winning bonus that will allow the club to participate in Continental Shield.

Good effort. Did look a little bit like a training pitch without the stands on the other side, when Germany played Georgia there this year.
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.

Woah, The Lelo Monarchy has been overthrown! Did not see this coming.

I haven't followed. What happened to Batumi this year ? why are they so good ?

Rooting for Jiki in the final.

So guys, Lelos pool is:

1 - Australia - Nothing to hope about, Only Scrums. :D
2 - Wales - If there is small chance than we should jump higher.
3 - Georgia
4 - Oceania 1 - Fiji most probably, or Samoa/Tonga will be known in July 2017
5 - Americas 2 - Canada, considering USA's latest results

So every team here is not good at Scrums, thats 1st and last good news. Lelos scrum will dominate.

Oceania 1 will be hardest match for us, than Wales.

Milton must Aim the priorities:
1st: Victory over Oceania1 (Fiji)
2nd: Victory over Americas 2 (Canada)
3'd Victory over Wales (Close defeat will be good, Victory Better)
4th Victory over Aussies (LOL)

Good draw for Georgia. If a little luck goes their way they might be able to sneak into the QF's.

I concur with that assessment, I would say Fiji as Oceania 1... IF Georgia beat the Wallabies I will be buying any Georgian I see lots of Pints... You heard it here first. based on current Super Rugby and recent test results I wouldn't be surprised.

Well, I'll be hoping the Wallabies don't lose but it will be fun to see us take on the Georgians!

Australia is out of comment, they are one of the best.
Fiji is 1st priority for sure.
Canada is 2nd
and if we need luck than it is against Wales.

Calendar will be interesting. When will be calendar ready?

You underestimate the Wallabies ability to completely screw up. If you need luck it might come from Fiji. If they beat Wales and Georgia beat both Fiji and Canada then it's wide open for that second QF spot.

I would assume calendar will come out before the end of the year, no later than 12 months from now is my guess.

Common its Australia. I mean its a game and everything can happen but Aussies are strong!

Dragons are pretty strong and i like their style. Sometimes Wales is playing most attractive rugby but some times its better to watch football rather than Wales playing awful rugby.

Fiji is clearly best pacific team and i am fan of Fiji's backs.
Flying fijians.

Canada is weakest team but must not be underestimated! They can beat Georgia and Fiji

We have a tendency to overestimate just how good we are sometimes. Not suggesting Georgia will win but when the wallabies don't play well they are vulnerable.

Schedule will decide a lot here.

If we get Fiji and Americas as the first games then it's perfect. but if we face Australia and Wales before them then we'll have problems.

Overall a decent draw. Italy got off super easy but they won't have the chance to advance. I do think Us and Fiji might get a chance depending on the form of Wal/AUS.. They aren't exactly known for consistency even if they are far stronger than us.

Fiji will be a challenge but Milton being the PI specialist and us being Scrum specialists I can see clear advantages and ways to win the game. We will need a monumental effort in defense, but it's absolutely doable.

Agree!
Too bad Mamuka will miss RWC. He could be very useful in 2'd line.
Milton must prepare the team for that match vs Fiji. Lelos scrum must destroy Fiji if they want to win.

That is quite achievable.

Fiji will visit Georgia in 2017 November. Good chance to observe.

Also we will watch Pacific Nations Cup in July and see what they are capable of.
Fiji is my favorite team on PIs.

Same for senior LELO Lasha MalaGHuradze
