What a tantalising fixture this is. Two completely different styles from these Tier 2 nations in international test rugby. Japanese speed verses Georgian grunt. And these Georgians can sure pack a grunt. Up front not many teams can master them. In the end I’ll pick the home side Georgia to outmuscle the Japanese but only just.
