APIA, SAMOA – MONDAY 06 JUNE 2016: The visiting Georgian Rugby Team that arrived in Samoa in the weekend have already explored the island and have caught a big yellow fin tuna when out fishing with Troppo Fishing yesterday.
Lying two places behind Samoa on 14 and 16 respectively in World rugby rankings, the two teams are on a build up to qualify for the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
Georgia however knows the Samoans when they snatched a one point victory 16-15 in 2013 in a match that went almost 10 minutes overtime. But the home crowd can be a huge factor on Saturdays match at Apia Park.
The visitors will be welcomed in a cocktail function at the Tanoa Hotel tonight.
