Great news ahead to festive season is that The Lelos will play Scotland at Iconic BT Murreyfield in November test series 2016. The Lelos Rugby World Cup 2015 performance and tireless work of Georgian Rugby Union gave the first dividends.

 

This is the first time Georgia to face Scotland out of RWC, when two team first met in 2011.

 

Scottish Rugby Chief Operating Officer, Dominic McKay, said: “We’re delighted to confirm three very exciting matches for November 2016: World Cup finalists, Australia; World Cup semi-finalists Argentina; and an historic first Test on Scottish soil against Georgia.


"The Georgians won over thousands of new fans with their performances in the Rugby World Cup, defeating Namibia and Tonga to take them from tournament debutants in 2003 to securing automatic qualification as one of the top 12 teams in RWC 2019. I'm sure they'll get a great reception when they come to Scotland for the first time for this historic Test."

 

More matches against Tier 1 Nations – this is the most important opportunity for the further development of Georgian Rugby. After the matches against Argentina in 2013 and Ireland in 2014, Scotland is the third Tier 1 team we play out of World Cup

 

“It's a fantastic opportunity for the Georgian National team to play such an opponent like Scotland especially in an iconic stadium like BT Murryfield! We are grateful that the Scottish Rugbyhave agreed to host us in 2016 as it's these types of games that ultimately help us improve our game.

 

“It's also very exciting personally as I will be going up against my very good friend Vern Cotter, who I started my coaching career with. It will be a very special occasion for all involved." Said Milton Haig
