"Obviously, to host the first Tier 1 team Scotland in Georgia is a huge occasion not just for players and management, but for rugby in general in our country. Obviously, this is the culmination of the Rugby World Cup preparation, so it is the last opportunity for the Georgian public to see the national team playing before we go to Japan. Once again, both matches are very important for us, because we are trying to imitate World Cup matches. "
