Georgia thump USA in World Cup warm-up

NEWS: Georgia eased past the USA 22-7 on Saturday in their second warm-up for this year’s World Cup.


Flyhalf Luka Matkava kicked seven points for the Lelos as winger Akaki Tabutsadze, hooker Shalva Mamukashvili and fullback Davit Niniashvili crossed for tries in Tbilisi a week after hammering Romania.

Scrumhalf Ruben de Haas scored for the visitors, who have failed to qualify for next month’s World Cup but will host the 2031 edition.

Georgia end their preparations for the tournament by heading to Scotland next weekend.

They start their World Cup campaign against Australia on September 9 before also facing Portugal, Fiji and Wales in Pool C.
