The Georgian national rugby team has lost to England in Eight Nations, a new competition designed to replace autumn test matches. 

Although Georgian Lelos didn't score any points 'against a very strong position', they hope to improve from game to game.

The Autumn Nations Cup is ‘a completely new and innovative tournament' taking place over four weekends between November 13 and December 6.

The  unique eight-team competition involves the Six Nations as well as the rugby unions of Georgia and Fiji.

Georgia will have its next game with Wales on November 21.
