Past time for this thread.

Since this is the official rugby thread I'll stop using nickname "Georgia" and use our real name "Saqartvelo"

Ill put up some introductory videos on the front page for history buffs.

Informative video about Georgia for those interested.

Georgia have had a very good tour so far. Fiji favourites IMO though.

Why are they playing this match on a Friday?

No idea. maybe some logistical(flight scheduling) reasons.

Yes Fiji are favorites, We've already done way better than expected. Far from home, unaccustomed climate and weakened team. Islanders also had depleted teams though.


First half over 3-3

Fiji had one good chance for a try
Saqartvelo had two
Saqartvelo also missed 1 free kick.

2nd half

Fiji 3 - 8 Saqartvelo 42'
scrum is amazingly one-sided.

I think the PI nations should start sending their forwards to Georgia's scrum school.

I'd have willingly boiled my own mother alive for soap, if we had come back from New Zealand with two wins and a draw!

Interview with Milton Haig after the recent tour.

Quote:
Up to a record high of 11th in the World Rugby Rankings on the back of a superb Rugby World Cup 2015 campaign and an unbeaten first-ever tour of the Pacific islands, these are indeed heady times for Georgian rugby.

No sooner had the dust settled on the 14-3 win over Fiji at the end of June than the Lelos were thinking about the November tests and the opportunity to make more headlines.

“Before we left Fiji we spoke as a group about how a good November tour would get us into the world's top 10, which was a two-year target of ours as soon as the World Cup was over," said Lelos head coach Milton Haig

“We’ve got Samoa and Japan back in Tbilisi and Scotland away, and who’s to say we can’t cause an upset in Scotland? Obviously that will be very, very difficult because Scotland under Vern Cotter are a different team these days than they used to be.

“But the World Cup and Pacific tour have given us a massive boost of confidence and as we all know in sport if you get a roll on and confidence starts to build, things can happen.

“It (the Scotland game) is not something we are afraid of. We certainly want to be ranked in the top 10 by the end of the year, and if we work hard we think we can achieve that."



NEW APPROACH

Georgia were ranked 15th when Haig took over in December 2011, and while a four-place rise in the intervening years may only hint at incremental progress, the reality is that they are a world away from the one-dimensional team who were also-rans at RWC 2011.

Adding a touch of backline flair to a team of big men with big hearts, New Zealander Haig has overseen a dramatic upturn in the standing of the team at home and abroad.

“Watching the 2011 World Cup they were pretty one-dimensional: big, physical boys who were very set-piece orientated. We needed to learn more about the game and make decisions under pressure and attack teams by playing with a bit more width," he stated.

“So we have tried to add a few more strings to our bow other than just our forwards. The Pacific islands tour taught us that if we didn’t have another weapon to our armoury, then we were going to be found out.

“What I was really pleased about was that while they had brilliant individuals on their team, we probably created more opportunities through our attacking structure than they did.”

STRENGTH IN DEPTH

Automatic qualification for RWC 2019 courtesy of the Lelos’ third-place pool finish in England last year, plus the unavailability of several of his France-based stars, meant Haig was afforded the opportunity to try out some new combinations and also bring some fringe players back into the fold during their three-week stay in the Pacific.They kicked off with a 19-19 draw against Samoa in Apia before beating Tonga, just as they had at RWC 2015, and then Fiji in Suva.

“If you look at all our stats compared to World Cup around our set piece, our attack and our cleaning out, they show we are a lot better team now than we were at the World Cup," Haig revealed.

“When you take into consideration that it was our first Pacific tour and we were playing the likes of Samoa and Fiji in their own home ground, not many teams go there and win or draw, so I think for me it is up there alongside the effort we put in at the World Cup.

“Having guys away competing for their clubs forced us to bring in some other players to see if we could create a bit more depth to what we already had in some key positions.

“We have got props coming out of our ears if I am being honest, and tight-head Irakli Mirtskhulava was another to put his hand up on tour - as was number eight Beka Bitsadze, who just missed out on the final cut for the World Cup. I was really pleased for them because they hadn’t played for the national team for a couple of years.

CONSISTENCY

“Beka is only playing Federale 1 (third tier in France) but we’ve had a few enquiries from agents representing higher level clubs since the Pacific tour.” Haig is the first to acknowledge the input of World Rugby in establishing a more competitive playing programme for his adopted country, and the role that that has played in raising standards.

“We’ve now played Samoa twice in the last couple of years and Japan three times, so we’ve got better games and we’ve been more successful," he said.

“The more often we win test matches and do consistently well at test level, the more people will sit up and take notice.

“Our job isn’t to wait for people to invite us (into competitions), it is to go out and actively seek competitive games from World Rugby, who, Mark Egan and Peter Horne in particular, have helped us magnificently with our development.

“The more success we have on the field that can only help us when we’re at the negotiating table fighting alongside the likes of Japan and Fiji for games against tier one nations.”

A NEW CHALLENGE

Egan, World Rugby's Head of Competitions and Performance, explains the new approach to enable Georgia to continue to improve on the world stage.

“We were delighted with Georgia’s performances during the June tour to the Pacific islands,” said Egan.

“When we reviewed their RWC performances with Milton Haig and the coaching staff last November, we agreed that as they have already pre-qualified for RWC 2019 we needed a new approach for the national team in terms of the June and November window competition programme.

“While hosting the Tbilisi Cup tournament in June provided a great development platform for the national team programme over the last RWC cycle, we agreed with Milton that we needed to get the players out of their comfort zone so that they could challenge themselves in a totally different living and playing environment.

“Milton fully embraced the idea of a tour to the Pacific islands and felt that his players were ready to rise to the challenge that this would bring both psychologically and physically. To come back from that tour with two wins and a draw is an outstanding achievement for the squad, who can now look forward to the November window where they face Japan, Samoa and Scotland with great confidence.”

A Great comprehensive article/interview by PR. If you want get a picture of how Geo Rugby has evolved under Milton Haig, It's an interesting read for any real rugby enthusiast. Sounds fun being a coach of a team that wants to progress so much.

Georgia head coach calls on side to prove they deserve to play at Murrayfield after 'disrespectful' Rugby Park decision

GEORGIA head coach Milton Haig has claimed that the SRU’s decision to stage this month's autumn test at Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park, rather than Murrayfield, will motivate his players to demonstrate they are worthy of a bigger stage.

“To some degree, it’s disrespectful”, said Haig who had hoped to take on close friend Vern Cotter’s Scotland at Scottish rugby’s traditional home in Edinburgh on November 26.

The SRU’s rationale for staging the tie in Ayrshire was twofold. First, the visit of Georgia was not likely to attract a crowd of anywhere near Murrayfield’s 67,000 capacity and, second, the authorities sought to take an international fixture to a venue outside the capital as they have done several times in recent years.

In July, when Kilmarnock was announced as the venue for the Georgia clash, an official statement read: “Scottish Rugby continues to take international rugby across the country in a bid to grow the sport and we hope taking our national team to Ayrshire will inspire a new audience as a means to increasing interest and participation in grassroots rugby.”

Regardless of the factors behind the venue choice, Haig claimed “it could be a decision that comes back to bite them”.

“I was a bit miffed as Vern and I would both have loved to play at Murrayfield. Having lived here before, having Scottish heritage, and having watched the All Blacks play there growing up, it would have been something special to play there,” stated the Georgia head coach who worked as a teacher in East Lothian for a year in the early 1990s.

Indeed, the New Zealander would have stayed in Scotland longer had he not been denied a work permit despite having been selected by Jim Telfer for a development position with the SRU in 1994.

Haig recalls: “I was up against former Scotland internationals and Jim [Telfer] had told me that only a Scot would get that job, but he changed his mind after the interview. It was upsetting at the time when the Home Office didn’t grant me the permit. Jim sent me a wonderful note afterwards though and I hope he’ll be at the match at Kilmarnock.”

Georgia, ranked 11th in the world, could break into the top ten before the year is out and Haig believes this November “could be the most important window we’ve ever had.”

Playing in Europe’s second tier competition, the newly renamed Rugby Europe International Championships, Georgia have emerged unquestionably as Europe’s best team outside the Six Nations winning the tournament in each of the last six years and have already qualified for the 2019 World Cup. They harbour ambitions of being welcomed into the Six Nations one day as well, but genuine encouragement from the organisers has been in short supply.

Faced with some indifference in Europe, Georgia have had to test themselves elsewhere and this summer they emerged from a tour of the South Pacific with an impressive unbeaten record, defeating Fiji and Tonga while drawing with Samoa.

“The World Cup last year and the success we achieved on tour in the Pacific earlier this year were great, but going into the top ten would be us breaking barriers. At the start of this year, one of the goals we set was to reach the top ten so we’ll do all we can to make that a reality,” adds the Kiwi who lives in the Georgian capital Tbilisi permanently with his wife, a head teacher at an international school, and two daughters both of whom speak Georgian fluently.

“After the World Cup [where Georgia won two games for the first time in their history], we had to ask ourselves what comes next. It was vital that we strived for continuous improvement and that’s been visible with the record winning margin over Romania in March and the unbeaten tour in the Pacific,” noted Haig.

Accordingly, Haig sees the Scotland clash as a chance to turn a few heads in the northern hemisphere: “Putting in solid performances against the top teams can change the perceptions of both the rugby public and the decision makers. It is a chance for us to prove something, a great opportunity but it’s what we do with that opportunity that matters.”

While Cotter will be his adversary for 80 minutes in Ayrshire, Haig is looking forward to having his fellow countryman on his side when next summer he moves to French club Montpellier where several of the Georgian squad play.

“I am not sure if Vern leaving Scotland was a mutual decision. In any case, the south of France is not a bad place to be going, and he’ll have six of our lads in his squad so Georgia will benefit from having several of the team getting top class coaching at club level.”

The relationship between them is one that Haig describes as brotherly with Cotter the elder of the two. Only once before have they coached against each other, in a friendly in New Zealand in which Cotter’s side prevailed, a score Haig is keen to settle even if he concedes that the Scots will present a formidable test.

“They are a perennial top ten side so to play Scotland in Scotland is historic for us, and it will be a massive occasion. They were one referee’s decision away from the semi-finals of the World Cup and they had some good performances in this year’s Six Nations. We have to embrace the occasion.”

For Georgia, and the New Zealander leading them to uncharted heights in world rugby, overcoming the Scots in their backyard this autumn would prove a number of points.

It's ok bulletin board fodder for Georgia but it's a completely logical decision from the SRU. Scotland-Georgia is perhaps the upcoming match I'm most interested in outside of the USA tests.

I hope you beat the Scotts, that would be beautiful. I'd expect you to have the wood on them in the pack, but considering I can't think of a single Georgian back bar the Locamotive at 9, lets hope for a very wet day.

Japan went for the old "we're not contesting the maul" trick. Kind of stupid on their own line. Try Lelos

The Sky feed has Japanese commentary on one channel and Georgian on the other.

I need a 10-minute course in Georgian. Any offers?

Georgia are looking very good as long as they resist the temptation to play at the rapid-fire pace of the Japanese team.

They need to focus on playing their game. Their scrum is totally dominant so far.

Georgian 9 grabs a careless tap back and sprints 30m to score -- grounding was not clear to me but the TMO was happy.

Good guys leading 12 - 8 at halftime
