Milton Haig: 'Warm-up defeats are perfect for Georgia'

Milton Haig believes that Georgia's preparations for the World Cup have been "perfect" after three successive defeats.

Georgia head coach Milton Haig has claimed that three successive warm-up defeats is "perfect" as his side prepare for the World Cup.

Despite losing to Newcastle Falcons, Canada and Japan since arriving in the UK, Haig believes that the losses will force Georgia to produce their best form when it matters in the tournament.

"It's perfect because it puts us under pressure," he told reporters. "That's what you want. You want to maximise your warm-up games as much as possible and try and imitate what is going to happen in the World Cup.

"Going up against Tonga first is going to be another level. The three games have been excellent preparation for us going into the next two weeks.

"This is the best preparation for a World Cup that Georgia has ever had. That was our goal. Obviously it's not led us to getting the results we wanted from our warm-up games but as long as the process is right, I'm a big believer that once the World Cup starts it will be a totally different kettle of fish."

Georgia will also meet New Zealand, Argentina and Namibia in Pool C.
