Georgia arrive in Bristol ahead of Rugby World Cup 2015
Bristol gave a warm welcome to Georgia's national Rugby team for Rugby World Cup 2015 on Monday - with a special Welcome Ceremony in St George’s, followed by training at SGS College’s WISE Campus.
Four teams will arrive in the region this week, including Tonga, who arrived in Cheltenham over the weekend and Australia, who arrive in Bath yesterday.
Georgia will be based in Bristol for the next ten days and training at SGS College’s WISE Campus as they prepare for their matches. SGS College received an impressive score of 97% for its pitch test, one of the highest scores of any training facility. The report noted that the pitch was in “excellent condition with outstanding infiltration rates.”
General Manager of Sports Academies at SGS College, Simon Panes, comments: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Bristol. The sporting facilities at the College are outstanding, I am sure Georgia will put them to good use.”
With the Tournament rapidly approaching, fans still have the opportunity to get their hands on tickets to see Georgia at the third largest sports event in the world. The Tournament gets under way this Friday when England take on Fiji following the Opening Ceremony.
