Pretty strange decision by Jones to fly in the middle of the 6N to Georgia to train scrums. If it was before the kick of it makes more sense. I think is more fruitful for Georgia in this situation because they stay at home. Anyway nice recognition for Georgian pack.

It's Georgia going to England finally, instead of the English trip to Georgia previously rumoured. Lelos had to come to Western Europe anyway for this weekend.

OK sorry, this is more logical :). Georgia anyway is playing in Germany.

Exactly. Makes more sense to fly to England and to Germany after. Interesting that English article only mentions Scrums and lineouts while the GRU one mentions scrums, backs as well as joint practice of two teams. I guess we'll see.

The Lelo backs are in London as well. I suspect England mention set pieces because that is what Georgian rugby is known for, but it will be a general joint practice session.

France won 19-24 they scored the winning try in the last minutes. The next game will be translated on fb 16 feb, it will be a more official match with just 23 men.

That makes sense.

The 2 teams will want to get something out of it. Eddie's driven and pinpoint and I think Milton would want some help in organising backs moves. Maybe look at a 2nd 10 in the side like England do?

England will want to get some work done around the set pieces and scrums. It's actually a very good thing for both teams.

Maybe then can teach Kacharava how to pass? Can‘t forget his pass against Japan. Cost us the win.

Katcharava has massively improved his attacking game in recent years. Yes it still has flaws but to me It's fascinating how a 100 cap veteran is still improving every game. He's an unbelievable player, if every young player had the same mentality we would be flying high in top 10 right now.

Ok guys, now it is still allowed to critizise someone even if he has 100 caps right? It's not like we had a lot of competition in the backs departmant over the last let's say... 200 years. Only for the last 2-3 years Young strong backs are coming through so getting 100 caps is not that hard when you consider that he was playing alongside international legends like Aptsiauri and others and there was no fight for places: Those who could run without falling over their shoes and tackle would get safe 100 caps if he was a back. And second: Being a good Defender is not the SOLE duty of a good Center. He should be able to pass the ball as well Maybe? Don't get angry with me now. Just my opinion.

You might be right criticizing Kacharava's attacking play but its really not his fault.

You cannot blame him that Georgia's coaching and facilities were not up to the standards before. His generation was deprived of the facilities and coaching staff that current generation of Georgian players enjoy. Whatever Kacharava lacked in skill he fully made up with his committment.

In general I think our old generation deserve big praise for reaching the level where we are today.

True. They deserve respect and prais for where they brought the game but we can‘t afford being nostalgical. We should field players with a modern understanding of the game and we now have a few.

Thats pretty good choice of players. They all deserve to have playing time so that they can improve before the world cup.

But I don't see Kacharava missing out from the World Cup.
