Well done to Georgia who have virtually assured themselves automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup in Japan. If Tongo lose to New Zealand, as is expected, then Georgia will automatically qualify for the next World Cup.

Thanks for tuning in!

Georgia deserved the win as they dominated all facets of play, but their lack of finishing so nearly cost them in the end.

They will head home pleased knowing they won't have to qualify for the next World Cup.

Namibia still have a game against Argentina in Leicester on Sunday before heading home.
