There is a fair chance we will be making a few quid out of going to Georgia, more than we would in Italy for example anyway. They usually get big crowds too.

The down side is if we drop 5 % we will lose and be ridiculed again by the big boys if europe

Seems to be running very tight to World Cup schedule (maybe that's the norm?)-we open against Ireland on Sunday 22nd September.I imagine the squad will leave for Japan within a day or two of the final fixture against Georgia.

Best route out from here as well I reckon, direct Edinburgh - Istanbul flight with Turkish Airlines (who were really good when I flew with them)/.
Don't mention Rory Hutton. I did once but I think I got away with it.

Turkish Airlines are generally decent. Frequent flights on the Istanbul - Tbilisi route so connections should be easy.

Good boozing potential when you get there from what I've heard (and experienced in Georgian restaurants here).
