Georgia get one over Wales at The Principality
Georgia defeated Wales for the first time at Principality Stadium, rallying from nine points behind to win 13–12.
Wales led 12-3 at halftime thanks to two tries by Jac Morgan. However, when Alex Cuthbert was sent off, Georgia had room in the backfield, and Alexander Todua scored to cut the gap to two points.
With three minutes left, Luka Matkava converted the pressure from the imposing Georgian attackers into points with a long-range penalty, and the Lelos managed to secure the victory.
Georgia had a remarkable year and is getting ready for the Rugby World Cup in the best way possible. This summer, Georgia defeated Italy for the first time.
On the other side, Wales' inability to score after the 24th minute and occasionally being unable to produce clear-cut chances raises serious concerns.
They now play Australia in a key encounter the following weekend after failing to replicate their enthusiasm in the 20-13 triumph over Argentina a week earlier.
