Rugby World Cup 2007: Georgia Gets First World Cup Victory

Georgia is not a big team in world rugby. However, they have already recorded their first ever world cup win over Namibia in the Rugby world cup 2007. For Georgia, it is something more than special as they came to play this world cup without having any big hope after being drawn in a group along with France, Argentina and Ireland. Georgia won the match against Namibia by 30-0. So, no doubt, it will inspire them to throw a strong challenge against France in the next match.

Afriquenligne reported:
Georgia comfortably defeated Namibia 30-0 to record their first ever victory in any World Cup appearance. Merab Kvirikashvili opened the scoring with two penalties while Akvsenti Giorgadze scored the first try just before half time bringing the score to 13-0. Another penalty from Kvirikashvili and two late tries from Irakli Machkhaneli and Davit Kacharava completed the victory for Georgia. Namibia are eliminated from Pool D, having lost all their matches. Georgia are fourth in the group with five points, behind Ireland on nine.

It is true that Georgia was underdog in the tournament and they could not show any impressive performance against the big contenders. However, this win will be something inspirational for Georgia to play well in future and make them a strong side in the rugby world.

  1. yes good on georgia in what has been a year for the underdogs in rugby union terms...

    i mean, argentina finishing 3rd, wales and ireland going out at the groups, aus and NZ not making it past the quarters... even england were not expected to make the final... just goes to show why sport is so exciting... unpredictability
