Black Eagles soar in World Rankings


Exceptional Eagles?

Germany has proven to be the exception to the rule (higher ranked nations wins more often than not) with their win over the Swedish Elks on day two of the European Championships yesterday. The win has seen the Black Eagles climb to 17th place in the World Rankings and bring down the Elks to 18th place with Japan and Peace Team lucky recipients of a one place rise each to 15th and 16th respectively.

Germany and Sweden traded 2.04 Rating Points Germany now with 36.12 and Sweden 35.63.

Sweden’s loss to Great Britain on day one also saw the Elks lose 0.86 Rating Points, the Bulldogs creeping that little bit closer to Canada at 9th Place.

World Rankings after Day Two are:
1. Australia
2. Papua New Guinea 57.66 rating points
3. Ireland   56.68
4. New Zealand  55.09
5. Nauru   53.30
6. South Africa  49.63
7. United States  47.61
8. Canada   46.69
9. Great Britain  45.55
10. Denmark  43.67
11. Tonga  41.93
12. Croatia  40.35
13. Fiji   40.18
14. France  39.09
15. Japan   37.17 
16. Peace Team  36.46 
17. Germany  36.12 
18. Sweden  35.63 
19. China   28.84
20. Finland  27.45
21. India   23.01

Provisional Nations:  
Indonesia  32.66
Pakistan  32.35
Timor Leste 27.40

Dormant Nations: More than Four Years since last international match.
Samoa 41.85
Iceland 35.64

Day Three of the championships sees the women in action with Great Britain Swans and the European Crusaders debut at full field 18-a-side footy.

The World Ranking predictions outlook for the women will probably see Ireland gain enough Rating Points to climb into 3rd place above United States and the debutantes rank provisionally at P1 and P4, depending on which nation is the more successful.

However if the German Black Eagles can repeat the “exceptional”  against Great Britain they could soar to 15th Place just a smidgen 0.04 rating points behind France, and kick the Bulldogs out of their kennel down to 11th place behind Denmark.
