Today Georgia were welcomed to Rugby World Cup 2015 as part of their official Welcome Ceremony at St George's, Bristol.

 

The ceremony marked the arrival of the team ahead of the start of their Rugby World Cup 2015 campaign at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester on September 19, when they face Tonga in their opening game of the Tournament.

 

The ceremony saw the Georgia squad arrive at St George's, Bristol to be greeted by a choir from St Brendan's Sixth Form College from Bristol, performing World In Union in front of an audience including figures from World Rugby, England Rugby 2015 and the RFU, as well as the player's families and the local community.

 

Following welcome speeches, from Chairman of World Rugby, Bernard Lapasset and member of the RFU Council, Malcolm Wharton, each member of the team was presented with a Tournament cap and Rugby World Cup 2015 participation medal. There were four cap and medal bearers who were selected from local clubs and educational institutions, representing the legacy of Rugby World Cup 2015. 

 

Speaking during the ceremony, Georgia captain Santiago Vilaseca said: "Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm hoping it will be a most successful Rugby World Cup, and I'm wishing the best for my team."
