A potential bogey team for Wales first up, Georgia could be ones to watch in Japan.
Georgia Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide
This is the potential banana skin that Wales would rather have avoided first up. Physically domineering, hungry as hell and ambitious to boot, the Lelos could build up a head of steam for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
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 young 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
