Georgia Rugby World Cup 2011 Betting Guide
Georgia are of course one of the smaller rugby playing nations but they have managed to qualify for the last two World Cups as well as securing their passage through to the 2011 tournament in New Zealand. Their biggest success was a 30-0 victory over Namibia in 2007 and they will be hoping to get another win on the board in 2011, they will struggle beyond that but they will be aiming to make themselves tough to beat in Pool B as they play Argentina, England and Scotland.
The general feeling is that Georgia are the seventh best team in Europe after the main Six Nations teams and that is an impressive achievement for a nation as small as Georgia. They have backed that up by qualifying for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in some style, which proves they are improving gradually but it is hard to see them ever joining the Six Nations teams each year.
Georgia benefit from the majority of their squad playing in France for some of the top teams in the country, Davit Zirakashvili plays for Clermont while Davit Khinchagishvili plys his trade for Brive and both of them will need to be at their best for Georgia in New Zealand. The bookmakers believe that Georgia have next to no hope of qualifying and it is impossible to argue with based on their squad, they will be hoping to register a victory down under whilst knowing that being in the top two is beyond them at this stage.
