JWRT 2014 – Georgia to play Namibia for the 5th place decider


The final round of JWRT 2014 will kick off tomorrow in Hong-Kong. The previous round, which took place on April 15, settled the finalists U20 Tonga and Japan to qualify for the JWC 2015. JWRT 2012 winners USA will face Uruguay for 3rd place. U20 Lelos will have to play Namibia for the 5th place as they gained 3rd place at Pool A. The fixture between hosts – Hong-Kong and Canada will determine tournament last two places.

The Junior Lelos have launched their pool campaign quite well, after winning over Tonga in their opening match in Pool A. In their second pool stage match, they faced the USA. Georgian team had to win that game in order to strengthen chances for pool leadership, but they failed to do so, by losing to USA 12-13.

Round two results narrowed Georgia’s chances for the tournament final match qualification, but the theoretical chance was still remaining. In order to qualify, Georgia had to gain a wining bonus in a match against Hong-Kong, but they were bale only to score three out of four tries. Meanwhile, Tonga claimed bonus victory against USA and set in the top of the Pool A. Thus Georgia finished pool stage on the third place.
