The Lelos are getting ready for their first ever International test against Wales in Cardiff at iconic Principality Stadium on November 18 (KO 18:30 Geo Time). Milton Haig decided to trust his starting fifteen from the previous week, when The Lelos defeated Canada 54:22 at Dinamo Arena in Tbilisi.

 

Experienced pack of Georgian forward will face the Wales up front on Saturday evening with Mikheil Nariashvili, Jaba Bregvadze, Levan Chilachava in first row; Kote Mikautadze and Giorgi Nemsadze in second and Lasha Lomidze, Victor Kolelishvili and Beka Bitsadze in the third.

 

Duo of Vasil Lobzhanidze and Lasha Khmaladze will feature at 9 and 10, with Captain Merab Sharikadze and 103 test cap winner Davit Kacharava in the center; The representatives of Georgian home premiership Didi 10 (Big 10) Mirian Modebadze, Giorgi Koshadze (wings) and Soso Matiashvili (full back) to fill back three.

 

 

The only change to the previous week’s squad is in reserves, where Haig included first Georgian Centurion, Merab Kvirikashvili (106 Caps for Georgia), instead of U20 Graduate Giorgi Kveseladze, who won his first international cap against Canada on his 20th birthday.
