Looking For an Optimal Squad


On June 28 Georgian Sevens team leaves for Moscow in order to compete in the second leg of European Sevens Grand Prix Series.

The first leg of this tournament was played in Lyon, France, on June 2-3; the third leg will be staged in Odense, Denmark on July 7-8.

Last year’s result at the Grand Prix (6th place) secured to Georgian Sevens participation in the Sevens Rugby World Cup Qualifier in Portugal on July 20-21.

European Grand Prix Series is played by 12 teams. 11th and 12th place holders are relegated and replaced by two best teams from the lower division.

Three European teams already qualified for the Sevens World Cup (to be played in Moscow, Russia, on June 28-30 2013) are Wales (World Cup 2009 winner), Russia (host nation) and England (because they finished the last World Cup in the top 8).

Three more European teams are going to contest Sevens Rugby World Cup qualification in Portugal.

George Asatiani, Georgian Sevens team manager:
“This year’s Grand Prix Series is important for us as preparation for the Rugby World Cup Gualifier. We would like to enter that tournament with an optimal squad. This year our squad has five new sportsmen who first played at Lyon Sevens.
In Moscow we aim to enter cup finals. Our pool is rather strong – we will have to play against Russia, Wales, England, Holland and Ukraine."
