Did you know? Zedguinidze is fluent in five languages
It was hit and miss whether this big number eight would make the tournament in Australia.
But Zedguinidze managed to recover sufficiently enough from an injured forehead to take his place in the Georgia party.
How much of a part he will play in the national side's campaign is still open to question.
What is certain is his mere presence will have an influence on the European minnows.
He has scored eight tries having accumulated just 23 Test caps.
The captain of Georgia was first noticed when he began playing at Rashi Rugby Club as a student back in his homeland.
He then went on to play for Gumari before moving to France and then Italy, where he starred for Rovigo.
Zedguinidze will be looking to lead the World Cup virgins to relative success in Australia.
