EXPERIENCE won out over enthusiasm as Georgia took a 25 - 17 win against the young RGC 1404 team at Parc Eirias.
The away side drew first blood as Georgia's Saba Nikolava scored a penalty under the posts in the first five minutes, while RGC lost an opportunity for a swift counter attack as Rhyl lad Rhodri Carlton Jones narrowly missed a penalty chance.
The Welsh side soon equalised, taking advantage of a lineout near the corner ten minutes in.
The opening try went to RGC 1404 after captain Kelvin Davies of Llandudno broke over the half way line before passing to Tom Parry who offloaded to Ben Stelmaszek.
Stelmaszek showed quick feet and drove the ball home with a brilliant try topped with a conversion by Carlton Jones.
For the opening 15 minutes, RGC dominated, pressing forward into the opposing half, testing the Georgian defence until winger Irakli Gegenava broke away, giving the Welsh side a sharp warning.
This failed to prepare them for a fleet challenge from fly half George Kacharava who exploited a gap in the RGC defences to score an easy conversion.
Prop Levan Chilachava tipped the balance, emerging from the ruck to plant the ball behind the line and pave the way for another away conversion.
RGC finished the first half putting pressure on the Georgians, but the visitors held firm and as the half time whistle blew North Wales found themselves 15 points down, the score at 22 - 7.
Despite a solid attack, aided by the visitors losing a man when ref Rhys Tomos sent Georgian centre George Jimsheladze to the sin bin, RGC were unable to turn the tide.
A penalty by Carlton Jones raised hopes of a Welsh rlaly, while some quick passing from the RGC attack set up Stelmaszek to dive over in the corner for his second try.
A kick from Carwyn Ap Myrrdin narrowed the gap to a respectable 17 - 25, while sterling play by Davies earned him the title of man of the match, but Georgia clinched the win comfortably.
