Here are some highlights of Georgia’s dismantling of Russia this past March.

The Lelos (the nickname of the team is also the Georgian word for “Try” which is why you’ll hear it a lot in the commentary), crushed the Bears 46-0 in Tbilisi.

The people in the stands you keep seeing are Georgia president Mikheil Saakashvili, his wife Sandra Roelofs, and his teenage son Eduard. Eduard Saakashvili, fyi, holds the world record for speed typing on an iPad.

Georgia used a massive back five of their pack, good execution in their lineouts, and plenty of power in the breakdown to break down the Russians.
