Georgia and Emerging Italy meet in the first match of the evening with both sides winning one game a piece. The Italians sit in second place by virtue of claiming a bonus point win over Spain, something the hosts failed to achieve.

Emerging Italy Coach Andrea Cavinato was very happy with the application his team showed against Spain after the opening round loss to the Jaguars. He Said: "The group have grown together a s a team throughout after only playing together for a few days before the tournament started. We improved against Spain and we need to step it up again on Sunday against Georgia. It will be difficult against Georgia, they are a massive team and very physical but we will give it our best. We a young team with most players under 23 years old so we will do our best."

Georgia Head Coach Milton Haig was left frustrated after the Lelos lost by 10 points to the Jaguars. "We created lots of chances but our set piece struggled, especially at scrum time. Realistically if you look at all the opportunities we created, we only had to convert one of them and we would have probably won the game. We saw some pleasing aspects in review with some positives we want to take into our final game, but we know the Italians will be tough. They will have a good scrum and they are a team that like to use the ball and rarely kick. It will be a ding dong battle and we are looking forward to it."=

Jaguars one win away from claiming 2014 Tbilisi Cup

Argentina Jaguars know that a win over Spain in the 19.00 kick-off tomorrow evening will ensure they take home the 2014 Tbilisi Cup.

The Jaguars have won both of there matches so far, including a hard fought win over Georgia in the round 2 on Wednesday evening.

Bernado Urdaneta, coach of Argentina Jaguars, knows his side have to maintain their level of performance if they are to beat Spain and win the tournament. He said: "It will be a tough game with Spain. We have grown as a team throughout the tournament and we want to ensure that we can finish on a high. If we keep to our strategy and plan we know what we can do. Spain are a courageous side and will make it tough for us."

Spain are looking to salvage some pride after being comprehensively beaten 37-0 by Emerging Italy on Wednesday. The Spanish felt they went backwards after their courageous display against the Georgians in round 1 and will look to finish the tournament on a high.

Scrum half and captain Pablo Feijoo said: : "It is going to be a really tough match because they have won their last two games. They had a good match with Georgia where they performed really well. For us, as I have said all week, we are building a team for 2019 so this is another match for our players to get more experience and hopefully get a close result against the Jaguars. As a squad we have enjoyed the Tbilisi Cup and although we haven't yet won a game it has been crucial for our development."
