Sandy park in Exeter will host the Pool C match between minnows Namibia and Georgia on Wednesday. Both sides, although facing early journeys home, have been immensely popular with the rugby supporting public, for their whole hearted displays, and enterprising play, as they seek to make the most of their limited playing resources.
Georgia did arrive at the tournament with the target of a third place finish in the Pool, and automatic qualification for the 2019 tournament in japan. Their opening weekend win against Tonga in Gloucester made that a very real possibility, and despite subsequent defeats to the giants of their Pool, New Zealand and Argentina, a win against Namibia in Exeter would ensure that they clinch that vital third spot.
Namibia lost first up to the All Blacks, but scored three tries in a Rugby World Cup game for the first time ever, when they lost to Tonga in Exeter last week. The final score being 35-21 to the Islanders. The sides have met previously at the World Cup, back in 2007 in Lens, when the Georgians won 30-0. The score may be tighter this time around, but the result is likely to be much the same, in a clash between two teams who strength definitely lies in their forwards.
