Lelos ready for finale

Georgia coach Malkhaz Cheishvili has made seven changes to the side that beat Namibia 30-0 for Sunday’s clash with France at Stade Velodrome in Marseille.

Should Ireland fail to pocket a single tournament-point against Argentina on Sunday, a bonus-point win for the Lelos would see them finish third in Pool D and thereby qualify for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

But the hosts know that a bonus-point win of their own will be enough to see them through to the quarter-finals.
