Georgia is fourth of the group with four points. With their defeat against Argentina (54-9) last week, they seriously compromise their chance of qualifying for the quarterfinals. However, they are still well placed to clinch third place, synonymous with qualification for the next World Cup in Japan. Georgia had a great start by winning the first game against Tonga (17-10). On the second day, teammates Gorgodze were smashed against Argentina. If they managed to take the shock to face the Pumas, they were, however, totally overwhelmed by the speed of the Argentine back line. Each acceleration of South Americans set fire in the Georgian defense.
In five days, Georgians will play a decisive match for third place against Namibia. With this in mind, the coach Milton Haig decided to rest several regular players for this game against the All Blacks. Thus, key players Zirakashvili, Bregvadze, Mikautadze, Nemsadze and Kvirikashvili are not in the group, while players like Nariashvili or Lobzhanidze start on the bench. The star of the team, Mamuka Gorgodze will begin in flanker and leave the position of number 8 to Lomidze. At backs, the team is very light with many players playing in the local championship.
New Zealand logically occupies the first place in the group with 9 points. At the first meeting, they were greatly disturbed by Argentina which has during several minutes led the scoring. Finally, Blacks managed to win by 10 points. On the second day, Richie McCaw teammates crushed Namibia 58-14. Despite the scoreline, the Kiwis were far from impressive. However, the coach Steve Hansen had set up a very large turnover. Today, the key players are back on the pitch. Naholo, the star of the team, is back from injury and will start on the wing. Nonu slightly injured, Sony Bill Williams will evolve alongside Conrad Smith in the center. The back line will be way too fast for Georgia. The pack of forwards is stronger as well.
The starting XV: B. Smith; Naholo, C. Smith, S. B. Williams, Savea; (o) Carter, (m) A. Smith; McCaw, Read, Kaino; Whitlock, Retallick; Faumuina, Coles, Crockett
Replacements: Mealamu, Woodcock, O.Franks, Vito, Cane, Kerr-Barlow, Perenara, Fekitoa
New Zealand is way stronger. I think New-Zealand will winby at least 70 points.
