Ilia Zedginidze (Georgian: ილია ზედგინიძე) (born January 20, 1977) is a former Georgian rugby union player. He plays as a Number 8 and is a lineout specialist. A member of their inaugural World Cup side in 2003, he captained Georgia in the 2007 tournament, but was forced out of the squad because of an injury. This injury ultimately led to him announcing his retirement from international rugby, after gaining 48 caps. He returned to the squad in late 2008, playing against Scotland A and taking part in the 2009 European Nations Cup, where he scored a game-saving try against Portugal on February 14, 2009.
