Dan Lydiate believes there will be "no better baptism of fire" than the one that awaits an inexperienced Wales pack tomorrow.
Lydiate, 29, captains a Wales team that sees the Ospreys flanker's 60-cap Test haul being almost twice the combined figure of his seven fellow forwards.
Prop Leon Brown, lock Adam Beard and flanker Sam Cross all make their first international starts, while Cardiff Blues second-row forward Seb Davies lines up at number eight for Georgia's Principality Stadium visit.
And with Georgia being renowned for their rugged, uncompromising approach up-front, Lydiate sees it as an ideal examination.
They (Georgia) will be rubbing their hands together. But to be fair, our boys will be doing the same. There will be nerves, but there is no better baptism of fire.
Time just flies, and now we have a load of youngsters coming through. In rugby, there will always be different stages of development, and at the moment I am at the back end of it and new boys are coming in.
I am excited to be here and captaining such a young bunch. As a pack, if we do well against a big, heavy Georgian eight, it will only stand us in good stead in the future.

Wales boss Rob Howley has described Liam Williams as "probably a left-wing who can play full-back" after making another switch of positions with Toulon star Leigh Halfpenny.
Many pundits view full-back as the best role for Williams, who looks set to join English and European champions Saracens next season and is rated as a British and Irish Lions certainty in New Zealand next summer.
He started in the number 15 shirt when Wales claimed a tense 33-30 victory over Japan last weekend, with Halfpenny on the wing, but those roles have been reversed for South Africa's Principality Stadium visit on Saturday.
Liam was very disappointed with his performance (against Japan). I spoke to him about being a connection in the back field. Liam is a very intuitive player, there is an X-factor about Liam and he has that ability to add value in the wider channels.
But Leigh is equally important. The way we defend, Leigh Halfpenny does a lot of work on and off the ball. For me, at the moment, that is the best back-three (George North is the other wing). Liam is probably a left-wing who can play full-back, where I think Leigh can play both.
