The Goal Is To Qualify For the Rugby World Cup

19-Jul-2012


Georgian National Sevens Team arrived to Portugal three days ago in order to prepare for participation in the RWC Sevens Qualifier. Georgia will play its first game against Germany tomorrow, on July 20, at 20:44 Georgian time; the second game against Belgium will be at 22:56.

Ahead of the tournament, head of the Georgian Sevens team Kakha Alania spoke about the current situation in the team and evaluated future opponents.

Kakha Alania, Head Coach of Georgian National Sevens Team:

“For this tournament we managed to assemble almost all the players whom I and Paliko Jimsheladze wanted to see in the team.
It is disappointing that George Shkinin got injured just before the season and missed the whole preparatory period. Another injury was sustained by Giorgi Kalmakhelidze at the last leg of European Grand Prix Series.
We already arranged several trainings – two sessions per day on Tuesday and Wednesday, one more this morning; in the afternoon we are going to have a video analysis session. Portugal Sevens team trained together with us once, and it showed us that our players are in a good shape; I am satisfied with their S&C levels.
Our goal is RWC Sevens qualification, but this means a difficult struggle with strong opponents, who arrived to Portugal as early as us and prepare for the tournament very seriously.
It is crucially important that the team maintains discipline and follows the game plan. We have analyzed our opponents very well and know what kind of game we should play in order to achieve positive results.
We are all motivated and look forward for the tomorrow’s games.”
