Beka Saghinadze, born on 29 October 1998, is a Georgian rugby union player who primarily plays as a flanker. He currently represents Aurillac in the French Pro D2 league.

Saghinadze's rugby journey began with his participation in the 2015 European Rugby Union Under-18 Championship, where he helped his team reach the final. He was also selected for the 2016 edition of the same competition.

In 2017, Saghinadze received a call-up to represent Georgia in the World Juniors tournament held in Georgia. During that same year, he made his debut in the Georgian domestic league, Didi 10, playing for Lelo Saracens Tbilisi. Following his first season with the senior team, he was once again chosen to compete in the World Juniors tournament.

After the World Juniors, Saghinadze moved to France and joined Stade Aurillacois, initially playing for their youth team. He made his Pro D2 debut in December 2018, coming off the bench against Aviron Bayonnais.

In early 2019, he earned his first international cap for Georgia, playing against Romania. Later that year, he was included in the Georgian squad for the Rugby World Cup held in Japan. He featured in four matches during the tournament, including two as a starter.

In early 2020, Saghinadze scored his first try for Georgia against Portugal. Later that year, he started in all four matches of the Autumn Nations Cup, scoring a brace against Fiji. His consistent performances earned him a regular starting position for both club and country.

In 2021, Saghinadze signed a three-year contract with Lyon OU, a club competing at a higher level in French rugby. The move reflects his progression and recognition as a promising player in the sport.

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2023, Saghinadze has been named in the squad for Georgia.
