Best player: Tommy Reffell

Wales Online wrote: “Finally got his chance and put in a huge shift. Won four turnovers turnovers, put in 19 tackles, and gave Wales a real physical edge at the breakdown. A performance that has given Warren Gatland plenty to think about.”

Rugby Pass wrote: “Tackled like a rabid sheepdog. The Leicester Tiger man was a standout performer, causing problems for Georgia at the breakdown and winning three crucial turnovers. His work rate was exceptional.”

Worst player: Tomos Williams

Wales Online wrote: “Williams didn’t have a great platform at times with Georgia doing their best to put the Cardiff number nine under pressure. Wasn’t as much of a threat with ball in hand as usual but kicked well out of hand. However, Wales lost their shape in attack too often and the half-backs have got to take some responsibility for this.”
