In the second round of Rugby Europe Championship, Portugal hosted The Lelos at University Stadium in Lisbon. The teams’ 20th encounter witnessed  The Lelos four unanswered tries and the final score of 29:3.


The first half lacked pace as it wasn’t as intensive as the second one. The reason to that wasn’t only the rainy and windy conditions, but we made a lot of errors.  As a result got Kubriashvili’s sin-bin. Despite it, The Lelos still managed to oppress the rivals and the first chance for penalty was obtained. On the 19th minute Kvirikashvili scored  3 points 3: 0.


Soon the Portuguese took a chance to level the score and the winger Nuno Sousa Guedes opened the Lobos’s score – 3:3.


After the few penalties in scrums the hosts’ prop Bruno Rocha got a sin-bin. And soon The Lelos scored the first try. After winning the ball in the line out, a maul was formed and the forwards carried over the ball in the try line. Giorgi Tkhilaishvili grounded the try. But Kvirikashvili’s conversion was hampered with the strong wind and the ball couldn’t penetrate. 3:8


It did not take much too long for Another try. The Lelos beautiful combination wrapped up with Kvirikashvili’s try, at this time Kvirikashvilis’s kick was perfectly weighted and fixed 3:15 lead at half-time.


Just after the second half kicked off, Zurab Zhvania traded the third try and Kvirikashvili’s another marksmanship made us 19 point lead over - 3:22.


Next 20 minutes witnessed Georgia’s attacks  and on the 26th Lobos failed to defend  their try line, as Merab Sharikadze fought for the last try of the game after he gained the ball from winger Sandro Todua, who managed to dodge two defenders. Georgia’s all-time leading point scorer’s great footwork again and ultimately the score was fixed at 3:29 in favor of Lelos.
