Georgia head coach Richie Dixon has recalled Toulon prop David Kubriashvili for Sunday's Rugby World Cup Pool B clash with England in Dunedin.
Kubriashvili was left on the bench for the Georgian's tournament opener against Scotland on Wednesday but he takes over at tight-head from Clermont Auvergne's David Zirakashvili, who drops to the bench.
The only other change to the side beaten 15-6 by the Scots also comes in the pack, with Ilia Zedginidze coming into the second-row in place of Levan Datunashvili.
Georgia: Revaz Gigauri; Irakli Machkhaneli, David Kacharava, Tedo Zibzibadze, Alexander Todua; Merab Kvirikashvili, Irakli Abuseridze (capt); David Khinchagishvili, Jaba Bregvadze, David Kubriashvili; Ilia Zedginidze, Vakhtang Maisuradze; Shalva Sutiashvili, Mamuka Gorgodze, Dimitri Basilaia.
Replacements: Akvsenti Giorgadze, David Zirakashvili, Levan Datunashvili, Giorgi Chkhaidze, Bidzina Samkharadze, Givi Berishvili, Lasha Khmaladze.
