Georgia have made two changes on medical grounds to their Rugby World Cup 2023 squad. Irakli Aptsiauri replaces prop Luka Japaridze (pictured) and Otari Giorgadze comes in for back-row Beka Gorgadze. The Lelos are competing in their sixth Rugby World Cup, having made their debut in 2003 in Australia. In five tournaments to date they have notched five wins, with their most successful outing coming in 2015 in England, where they beat Tonga and Namibia.
Change to the original 33-man squad shown in bold.
Player withdrawn from original squad: Beka Gorgadze (back-row), Luka Japaridze (prop).
Georgia lost 35-15 to Australia on 9 September and drew 18-18 with Portugal on 23 September. They play Fiji on 30 September and Wales on 7 October.
