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.
Gwent Police is concerned for the welfare of a teenager who has links to Cardiff.
16-year-old Sebastian Gonzalez was last seen in the Newport area on Saturday 11th of November.
Sebastian, who is also known to spend time in Cardiff and London, is described as being approximately 5’8” with brown hair and brown eyes. He also two tattoos on his right arm.
Anyone with information of his whereabouts is asked to contact Gwent Police on 101.
An agreement over water is to be made which will see powers shared between the UK and Welsh governments.
The UK Government currently has powers which mean it could intervene if it believes devolved functions risk having a 'serious adverse impact' on water resources, water supply or water quality in England.
The new deal will mean UK ministers will no longer be able to intervene in decisions made in Wales.
The introduction of this protocol addresses an existing imbalance in the devolution settlement that could, in theory, result in UK Government Ministers intervening in matters that are the responsibility of the Welsh Government.
I am pleased with the constructive and positive way in which both administrations have approached the drafting and implementation of an agreement which, importantly, means water consumers on both sides of the border are safeguarded.
