Indonesia becomes 22nd Fully Ranked Nation to WFN World Rankings, entering at 14th

Indonesia has become the 22nd Fully Ranked Nation with their First Round Division Two Match against Sri Lanka at the 2017 International Cup, Sunday 6th August.

The Garudas notched up their 8th qualifying game with a win over international newcomer Sri Lanka Lions 7.7 (49) to 3.2 (20). Indonesia gained the maximum 3.00 rating points to join the Ranks at 14th place with 39.58 Rating points.

Indonesia enters the ranks between Germany 13th and Croatia 15th which makes their next IC17 match up with Croatia in Round 2 very interesting. Croatia will be smarting over their 1-point loss to China on Sunday and will be determined to make amends. Indonesia are 1-0 against China, the Garudas victorious at the Inaugural All Asia Championships in 2016, so the Knights could well have another fierce battle on their hands. This match surely is the match of the round in Division 2 on Wednesday.
