The Indonesia national rugby union team represents Indonesia in rugby union. They are nicknamed the "Rhinos". The team is an associate member of IRB. They have yet to play in the Rugby World Cup. The Indonesian squad was formed in 2006 to attend the IRB sanctioned Six Division Asian Rugby Football Tournament between Brunei, Laos, Cambodia and Indonesia. They are competing in Division Three for 2010 Asian Five Nations tournaments.
In 2007, the Rhinos won the Asian Division 6 Championships in Brunei Darussalam after recording wins against Laos 17-3, Cambodia 11-10 & Brunei 28-13.
In 2008, the Rhinos won the HSBC a5n Regional Tournament, which was played at the Universitas Pelita Harapan, Jakarta, Indonesia. The Rhinos defeated Laos 23-11 on Tuesday, July 15 and Cambodia 55-3 on Saturday, July 19 in front of an appreciative home crowd.
But in 2009, after promoting to Division Three, Indonesia got two consecutive loses, 3-23 to Guam and 13-48 to Iran. However they will still play at Division Three in 2010 as they were not relegated.
