Plenty of movement in women’s ranking

Papua New Guinea, who claimed their fourth Pacific Games gold and qualified for the Stage 2 play-off against New Zealand in the Olympic qualifiers, moved up one position to 49th retaining their regional second place slot.
Fiji made a 57 position leap up the rankings to 85th, despite not making it out of the group stage at the Pacific Games. They sit eight places ahead of Tonga, who dropped by exactly eight positions to 93rd.
New Caledonia achieved their highest recorded ranking of 94th after their silver medal winning performances at Port Moresby 2015 saw them scoot 48 places up the list.
Cook Islands, one of the region’s more active women’s teams, has claimed 104th in the list after an impressive campaign which saw them claim their first ever bronze medal.
Solomon Islands and Samoa round out Oceania’s list of ranking sides moving 29 and 28 positions up the ranking respectively to claim 113 and 114th.
Tahiti, Vanuatu and American Samoa all dropped six positions to 148th, but technically remain unranked due to being inactive for more than 18 months.
