Ireland v Georgia: Autumn Nations Cup – live!
Minute-by-minute updates from the 2pm GMT kick-offSam Underhill helps England find a way to pass Welsh examinationEmail Luke | Tweet @LukeMcLaughlin with your thoughts 1.23pm GMT In the build-up to this afternoon’s meeting with Georgia, the Ireland forwards coach John Fogarty said they are ‘expecting a battle up front’, which is not the most insightful pre-match analysis you will ever hear. This Georgian side is famous for its forward muscle. But sarcasm aside, this is a big day for Ireland, who need to reassert themselves following that pasting at Twickenham last week. It’s an especially big day for the Ulster fly-half Billy Burns, who will make his full debut, and overall for an Ireland side which features nine changes. By extension it’s a big day for Andy Farrell and his coaching team who need to show that progress is being made and that they are developing a new identity post-Joe Schmidt. A criticism of their performance at Twickenham last week is they played into English hands by running straight and looking for contact. Perhaps such a policy would pay off today, given Georgia’s inferior fitness to England, but then again Ireland might do well to chuck the ball around a bit as well. England cannot be caught atop Group A, so it would make sense to put some emphasis on entertainment as well as achieving the right result at the Aviva Stadium, Lansdowne Road in old money.
