Georgia v Fiji was an exciting match on 3 October. The island nation really proved their worth by beating back Georgia with a strong attack during a “torrential rainstorm”. Scoring seven tries throughout the match proved that Fiji has what it takes to face Wales next week. Some reporters have blamed Fiji’s eight-day break, compared to the three matches Georgia played, for the lack of energy. Of course, the World Cup line up has been harsh, but there’s no excuse for fumbling.
Fiji is set to secure third place in Pool D and automatic qualification for the next World Cup. Their gameplay has been spectacular, but critics are divided over continuing momentum. They are currently the “biggest climbers” in world rankings along with Japan. Meanwhile, Georgia appears stuck in a rut and will remain at world #14 for the next World Cup.
Georgia v Fiji Highlights
According to fan tweets, Fiji is one of the “most entertaining teams to watch”, and we can’t help but agree. Some have gone as far as to nickname them the “Flying Fijians” thanks to fast runs and handovers. While Georgia did win some points back during the second half, the final score of 45-10 must have knocked some confidence.
With five conversions and seven tries, the full-time call was welcomed. Next, they will have to face Wales in what’s expected to be an action-packed fixture. Georgia will finally have a rest before they face the Wallabies. So, we’ve got some odds for the upcoming fixtures provided by Betway below:
