Rugby World Cup 2023: Georgia vs Portugal

Georgia will play the second game of the Rugby World Cup 2023 against Portugal on September 23 in Toulouse, France.

The GPB’s First Channel and Georgian Radio (FM 102.3) will live-transmit the match, which will kick of at 4 p.m Tbilisi time.

Saturday’s opponents Portugal made Wales work for their bonus-point win in Nice at the weekend. While they have every reason to be proud of their efforts then, they’ll want to build on that with an even stronger performance here.

Old rivalry, new setting: Georgia and Portugal have played one another 24 times since 1997. Portugal won four of the first seven encounters, but have not tasted victory since 2005 – 17 matches ago, while three of those games in that winless run have been draws.

“Borjghalosnebi” last played against Portugal in the finals of the 2023 Rugby Europe Championships and defeated the rival with a score of 38:11.
