Wales boss Wayne Pivac makes 13 changes to starting XV for Georgia clash


Wales boss Wayne Pivac made 13 changes to the starting lineup to face Georgia on Saturday.After Wales kick off their autumn Nations Cup campaign against Ireland on Friday, extending their losing streak to six games, Pivac’s side will look to bounce back against Georgia.

In an effort to do just that, Pivac made 13 changes to the starting squad that lost to Dublin and included four uncapped players on Matchday 23 in James Botham, Kieran Hardy, Johnny Williams and Ioan Lloyd.

Given the mounting pressure on Pivac in the face of Wales’ poor results, this could be seen as a courageous team selection or a potentially reckless selection if Wales struggled to overtake Georgia on Saturday.

Saturday’s game will be broadcast live on S4C and it will also be Wales’ first game to air on Amazon Prime Video. You can sign up for a free trial with Amazon Prime here.
