Beware - Gorgodzilla is coming to Japan.
Two years after his international retirement, Gorgodze has been enticed back, after injuries in the Georgian pack.
He was one of the under-the-radar stars of the last World Cup, named in the tournament’s 'Dream Team' and producing a player-of-the-match performance against the All Blacks.
Gorgodze is arguably the greatest player Georgia has ever produced having had a stellar international career and was a key part of a very good Montpellier side from 2005-2014.
