Georgia will play Italy

Autumn Nations Series 2024 fixtures have been confirmed but Wales will not play Georgia despite the latter publicly asking for the fixture.

Georgia won the Rugby Europe Championship and Wales picked up the Six Nations wooden spoon. Georgia are trying to show the powers that be they should be involved in the Six Nations and so asked to play Wales this autumn.

“It’s my great pleasure to invite our dear friends from Wales to play Georgia in Tbilisi this autumn,” said Ioseb Tkemaladze, president of the GRU. “After a thrilling Six Nations and Georgia’s seventh success in a row in the Rugby Europe Championship, it’s the fixture rugby fans everywhere are crying out for so I really hope the Welsh can take up our invitation.

“Of course we’d be equally happy to play them in Cardiff – where we won a famous victory in 2022. There is a strong connection between our two proud rugby nations, and we have had some exciting contests recently. We are rugby brothers.”

But the fixtures were announced and Georgia won’t play Wales. Warren Gatland’s side will compete against Fiji, Australia and South Africa. Georgia only have one fixture and that is against Italy.
