Georgia gunning for an upset

Misfiring Ireland can expect a further stern examination from Namibia’s fellow Pool minnows Georgia at Stade Chaban-Delmas on Sunday.

Eddie O’Sullivan’s charges were, for long periods, on the back foot during their 32-17 win over the Africans last weekend.

And with the tournament’s second and third tier surprising several star opponents, only New Zealand, Australia and South Africa recorded resounding victories during the first round of fixtures.

On Tuesday evening, Georgia will make their World Cup 2007 bow against Argentina, before taking on the Irish just five days later.

And the Lelos’ hooker Akvsenti Giorgadze has issued a stark warning to the so-called ‘Pool of Death’ heavyweights.

“Rugby involves contact. The history of Georgia is war, and rugby is like a modern war. On the field we do battle and rugby suits the Georgian national character,” he said, speaking to the Irish official website.
