Rugby World Cup 2019: Ruthless Wales impress in thrashing over Georgia

Wales produced a tale of two halves, as an electric start secured a deserved 43-14 bonus-point victory over Georgia in their Rugby World Cup Pool D clash.

The Welsh were rampant, as tries from Jonathan Davies, Justin Tipuric, Josh Adams and Liam Williams effectively ended the contest by halftime, handing them a 29-0 advantage at the break and the bonus-point in the bag.

That endeavour and accuracy deserted them in a largely forgettable second 40 minutes though, as further scores from Tomos Williams and George North papered over some gaping cracks in the performance.

Georgia are hoping to use this World Cup campaign as an audition for an entry into Six Nations, but there were few signs to suggest they are ready for that level, as they managed scores through props Shalva Mamukashvili and Levan Chilachava.

Wales 43 (Jonathan Davies, Justin Tipuric, Josh Adams, Liam Williams, Tomos Williams & George North tries; Dan Biggar four conversions & penalty, Leigh Halfpenny conversion) Georgia 13 (Shalva Mamukashvili & Levan Chilachava tries; Tedo Abzhandadze two conversions)
