After a narrow home defeat by Scotland to close out the delayed Six Nations, where they finished a lowly fifth, Wales were easily defeated 32-9 by Ireland in Dublin on the opening night of this inaugural tournament - their sixth successive loss.
The pressure is mounting on coach Wayne Pivac after such a dreadful run, but the New Zealander should claim some much-needed respite at the Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli against a Georgia side that were thrashed 40-0 by England at Twickenham last time out.
The Georgians were dominated up front by Eddie Jones’ men and had the atrocious weather conditions to thank for the scoreline not being even more emphatic.
Cardiff Blues flanker James Botham - grandson of England cricket legend Lord Ian - will make his debut against Georgia, while Justin Tipuric captains the side with usual skipper and record Test-cap holder Alun Wyn Jones afforded a rare rest.
Pivac has made 13 changes in total for what should be Wales’ most straightforward Pool A fixture, with only Tipuric and Liam Williams retaining their starting berths from the Ireland game.
Here’s how to follow the action this evening….
