Georgia head to Scotland on the back of two wins this summer - over Romania and the USA - but the Scots will pose more of a threat.


Gregor Townsend's men have beaten and lost to France and claimed victory over Italy in their World Cup warm-ups this summer.

Townsend has also not held back with his team selection, and has said he needs his stars to get the most game time they can before the tournament starts.

He explained: "Getting players to the World Cup is just one thing, getting players in their best form and the team playing its best rugby is what is important here.

"We're hoping to beat South Africa, the world champions and the number three team in the world, in our first game, and we're not going to do that if players haven't had match experience and another opportunity to improve as a team.
