Just the ticket.
Former Ireland international outhalf David Humphreys and ex-France hooker Sebastian Bruno have both joined the Georgian coaching set-up ahead of the Autumn Nations Cup.
The 72-times capped Humphreys, who recently left his position as Gloucester’s director of rugby, will take up a high-performance consultant role with the Georgians in what is a massive coup for the Lelos.
The 49-year-old scored 560 points for Ireland during his decade long international career and will be joined in the Georgia backroom team by fellow Ulster man Neil Doak, who will become Georgia’s backs and attack coach for the tournament.
Former France hooker, Bruno, has also been added to the Georgia coaching staff, taking on the role of forwards coach after working with Les Blues during last year’s Rugby World Cup.
Calvin Morris, who previously held the role of strength and conditioning coach with England at the Rugby World Cup in 2011, also joins Georgia’s coaching staff as the high-performance director.
Georgia will face England and Wales in the Autumn Nations Cup before taking on Ireland in their last Group A game.
