    Indonesia Rhinos Stay in Division III With Resounding Victory Over China

    Indonesia Rhinos Stay in Division III With Resounding Victory Over China

    Indonesia managed to stay in Division III of the Asian 5 Nations rugby competition with a 37-13 win over China in the third-place playoff at MBPJ Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

    The Rhinos will remain for another year in Division III while China is relegated to Division IV and will be replaced by Lebanon, which beat Pakistan 45-12 in the Division IV final in May.

    “I’m proud of all my teammates. They have showed hard work from training camp to this game. We called many new players and they showed great spirit to represent the country,” Rhinos captain Daniel Nugroho said.

    It was China who drew first blood with a penalty from Hianchi Biao. The Rhinos replied when they got a penalty and opted for a lineout. Indonesia lock Florian Busi scored a try and put his team up 5-3.

    With a slight advantage, Indonesia put pressure on its opponent and Dian Simatupang’s try extended the Rhinos’ lead to 10-3.

    After the water break, Bobby Sumantri converted his penalty to make it 13-3.

    China cut the deficit when Hianchi scored from penalty, but Indonesia responded straight away as Mike Bavin went over the line at the whistle to leave China trailing 18-6 at halftime.

    In the second half, Dian scored his second try of the day as Bobby converted for the full seven points.

    The Rhinos seemed unstoppable as Markus Didikus Ria scored a try for an insurmountable scoreline of 32-6 for China after another Bobby conversion.

    A try from winger Vegaz Sarwom removed the chance of a Chinese comeback.

    China got a late consolation try through Li Shibiao, converted by Hianchi, for a final score and emphatic Indonesian victory.
