Ireland almost lose to Georgia!?

Ireland almost lose to Georgia!?

Another dismal performance from a superpower, and another brilliant performance from a minnow.

Georgia controlled the game with their big men and forced their way into Ireland's territory. An intercept try, shown here, took them into the lead late in the game. Ireland came back with a try to scrape past and the secure the vital win with the final score being 14-10, despite the Georgians pounding away at their line right till the end.

Ireland's RWC 2007 hopes are falling apart. What do they need to do to click for next week's must-win meeting with France? Do they still have a chance to come right or has that time come and gone?

Irish coach Eddie O'Sullivan is puzzled, and he admits that if they don't get over this slump they're destined for an early World Cup exit.
