The excitement surrounding this clash has been building for some time now especially after Georgia’s good showing at last year’s World Cup in which they managed to beat both Namibia and Tonga.
The significance of this match is of vital importance for both team’s fortunes with Samoa looking to go into their Pacific Nations Cup opener against Fiji on June 18 with winning momentum while Georgia will want to continue with their impressive form after winning a sixth consecutive European Nations Cup title back in March.
Georgia will play further matches against the likes of Fiji and Tonga in the next two weeks and they will be introduced to the style of rugby in this match that they will come up against when they face off against the other two Pacific Island nations.
Samoa coach Alama Ieremia has introduced ten new players to the national team for this clash with four debutants in the starting team and six new players on the bench.
Full-back Albert Nikoro, scrum-half Dwayne Polataivao, number eight Jeff Lepa and loosehead prop Sam Aiono will all make their starting debuts for Samoa while David Lemi will captain the team from the left wing.
Faatiga Lemalu has a fantastic work rate and he is a powerful runner. The Sunwolves number eight is a good reader of the lineout and he will be pivotal to his team’s chances on Saturday. Lemalu will run out at lock for Samoa in this clash.
Meanwhile, Georgia have named Merab Kviriashvili to start at full-back on Saturday. Lasha Khmaladze will wear the fly-half jersey and flanker Shalva Sutiashvili will lead the team into battle alongside number eight Lasha Lomidze and blindside flank Giorgi Tkhilaishvili in the loose forwards.
Samoa are currently ranked 15th in the world while Georgia sit in 12th place according to World Rugby’s latest rankings which were released on Monday.
The two teams have only played each other twice before with the record now standing at one win apiece, Georgia look to be improving with every game, however Samoa should be too strong for them in front of their home crowd.
