Japan 2019 was the Lelos' fifth World Cup appearance
Georgia Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide
Physically domineering and hugely ambitious, the 2019 Rugby World Cup was the Lelos’ fifth global tournament, but they fell short of their goal of qualifying for the 2023 World Cup as they only won one match.
How They Qualified
Georgia were one of the 12 automatic qualifiers for the 2019 tournament.
Mikheil Nariashvili, Levan Chilachava and Shalva Mamukashvili. You may not know these guys but they are the front-row stars. If you want a livewire, look at scrum-half Vasil Lobzhanidze or thundering No 8 Beka Gorgadze.
The Coach – Milton Haig
Haig is one of Test rugby’s cult stars. The Kiwi has overseen steady systematic and on-field improvements, like automatic qualification for RWC 2019. The nation’s ambitions have swollen under him.
It’s rare to see high scoring from Georgia, particularly against top-ten sides. They can snipe but need a rapier to go with the cudgel.
