Apparently it's true. Romania beat them in the last game and are crowned champions on head to head results. Now people have to say should Italy be relegated for Romania... :thumbup:

Georgia played a weakened squad in the Rugby Europe Championship this year - as they had already secured qualification for the World Cup they've used it as an opportunity to try out some younger players and to rest some of their more experienced ones.

That said Romania did well to beat them, even at home. Italy struggled to beat Romania at the World Cup so no, I wouldn't say they're that far behind.

Georgia lost to Romania, Lynn Howells coaching the latter, but Georgria still won it.

Nope. A bit of a farce actually - both sides were level on table points after the game. Georgia were handed the trophy because they had the superior match points difference (or try count, I forget), but the rules actually indicated that it should have been Romania that won due to the H2H record between the two sides. Rugby Europe had to issue a clarification and apology. Doesn't make the organization look very professional!
