Opportunity for RWC 2015 preparations

IRBT Tbilisi Cup 2014 will also serve Georgia’s head coach Milton Haig as an opportunity to test younger players who he will be viewing for next year’s Rugby World Cup – “It’s with great pleasure that we get to host the Tbilisi Cup again and we thank the IRB for once again giving us the opportunity.

“The Tournament is now our single most important opportunity to look at players who will be vying for Rugby World Cup positions in 2015 and a great opportunity for all the players to put their "hands up" in front of the selectors.

“The tournament showed last year the tremendous quality of rugby the participating teams played and this year will be no different with great teams like the Jaguars, Emerging Italy and Spain visiting." – said Milton Haig.

President of the Georgian Rugby Union George Nijaradze said: "I would like to thank IRB for this opportunity to once again host the IRB Tbilisi Cup. This tournament is beneficial for the development of Georgian Rugby and its popularization within the country and worldwide."

“It is great for Georgian Rugby fans, who love to watch great Rugby and tournaments of such a level.”
