Georgia vs Fiji
World Cup
6:15am Thursday 3rd October

Georgia can proceed top of Pool D and book their place with victory over Fiji at the 2023 Rugby World Cup at Hanazono Rugby Stadium on Thursday.
They are keen to show the world how much they have improved, although the Georgians have to score a win over a country in precisely the exact identical vein since Japan victories over Ireland and South Africa.
Beating at quarter-finalists that are two-times Fiji, on the back of an impressive victory over Uruguay, will all-but a place and guarantee spot in the next World Cup.
It would be an ideal way for head trainer Milton Haig to bid farewell.
Youd be honest in stating that when Georgia wins this match, well be eligible for another World Cup, said Haig.
Logistically, nobody could grab us unless there are a few enormous, huge upsets.
Were confident that should we get this work done, we will have qualified. That is what weve worked for over the previous few decades. It has come down to this and we always knew it could.
He is fully braced for a Fiji backlash and expects to see the group which fared on against Australia rather than.
The whole world knows about the Fijian team, said Haig. Theyll seem to run the ball, so I am absolutely sure of that.
In what is a must-win match before it faces pool leaders Wales fiji needed an turnaround since dropping to Uruguay.
Georgia tally of five attempts against Uruguay carried to the momentum generated to Wales in the second half of its 43-14 loss. The Georgians asserted that one 29-0 but matched the Welsh 2-2 after the break in tries and commanded in the scrum.
The package of fiji has its work cut out, contemplating forward have so much scored five of Georgias seven attempts.
They must handle before putting their springs that are flying into the game Georgias imposing pack.
They are a very powerful set-piece team and it is about getting our set piece right to offer some fantastic chunk for our deadly backline, said Fiji prop Campese Maafu.
Anyone who understands the Flying Fijians nicely, we receive our name from flying round the pitch a great deal. However, this week that the main focus is to execute our plays and really apply some pressure at the set-piece.
Fiji head coach John McKee has made 11 changes in the Uruguay game, picking a containing 13 of the 15 players who started from Australia.
After demonstrating signs of concussion following a heavy and high tackle in the Australia match, peceli Yato, that overlooked the Uruguay game, returns in a substantial boost for McKees side.
Peceli has been a huge loss to us, said McKee. He had been in excellent form against the Wallabies, and at the time that he got injured was probably among the best players on the playground.
It has been great to have experienced an eight-day turnaround to give us some time to regroup and have a complete weeks training heading into this game.
