Rugby Test Match: Georgia v Spain

Georgia v Spain in Madrid (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 1)

Georgia is still a contender for the European Nations Cup. They clawed their back to a draw against Portugal two weeks ago and really haven't shown their true form.

Spain will need to win this game if they are going get close to the leaders of this competition.

Can Spain win this game? Remember Spain gave Georgia a big fright in Tblissi last year and also won in Madrid the last time these two teams met there. What do you think?

Regret team data not available for this match.
