After Irakli Abuseridze was elected GRU president in late December 2020, GRU has a new president. After today's new election, Ioseb Tkhemeladze is the new GRU preisdent. How long will this circus go on? Is there an end in sight? Can these people come together and stop bickering at each other for the good of Georgian rugby!

I believe the only expected addition was Nariashvili.

Apparently Nariashvili is injured. I am guessing it is going to be same team that played last week, with Lobjanidze, Abjandadze and perhaps Tabutsadze joining the starting XV.

The three you mentioned are expected to be in, also Niniashvili might start on 15.
Saghinadze has a small injury so he might not play.
And I think they will rotate the whole front row.

This is OFFICIAL source
http://vue.ge/2020-2021/EVROPA/SQUAD.htm
operated by GRU Stats Service

It's being updated regularly

It has "32-strong squad for 2021 REC" as Title
with "REC 2021 | CURRENT SQUAD" on windows header

Where one sees Nariashvili? If he is summoned, he will be added in RED

No offense, FLIDTA RISXVA, but it was GRU who said so:
“We plan to keep this squad for all these matches, though there might be some slight changes. Mikheil Nariashvili will join us for the Spain game. This year’s Rugby Europe Championship is the Rugby World Cup Qualifier and we are trying to assemble the most efficient squad”– said the Lelos’ Head Coach Levan Maisashvili.

:?: That was written on my 60th birthday on BLACK site :!:

That's why I've missed it

This morning I phoned GRU Communications Manager re NARIASHVILI
and he replied that "He is definitely out -- not added to squad"

Probably coach was trash-talking last month -- as Eddie Jones does

Supporters of Abuseridze (former players) trying to prevent the election from happening, which they failed to do.

65+ YEARS OLD BRETHREN
which has been ruling since 2004 "Nazi" takeover and
remained in power after "Dreamers" came on in 2012
is NOT keen to relinquish earning power

Unfortunately, Emperor cum rugby's main backer supports them
and NOT former | current | future players stock

It's 'dictator state' vs 'rugby folks' matter --
somehow similar to Morocco

From what I know Lobzhanidze and Saghinadze most likely will be ready for the game.
Gogichashvili is back with racing.
other than this, it is the same squad.

Would be interesting to see Goginava (if he is still with the team), and even Abuladze, who looks like a beast of a man.

This boy looks really promising, playing like that being 19 years old... not bad at all.

Yeah, he his. I just hope he can make a good French (or English) club even without the U20WC.
Otherwise, he might stop progressing in couple of years.
