Georgia entered RWC 2015 ranked 16.
We had a look back at their results, per ESPNScrum.com data, in the just over two year period back to 17th September 2013 (so including RWC 2015 games played).
Georgia had 3 wins versus higher ranked opposition: Tonga, Samoa, Japan (by comparison prior to RWC 2015 Japan had one such win).
They had one game each against Ireland and Argentina, both were losses.
Their win percentage against teams that are participating in RWC was 54% (7 wins, 6 losses). Their win percentage against higher ranked opposition is 37.5% (3 wins, 5 losses). Their all game win percentage is 65%, but that, for example includes games against Argentina A and Emerging Italy.
This analysis is somewhat approximative, but it is not immediately clear that Georgia is as yet ready to be competitive in major international rugby tournaments.
