Britain keep up rugby run
Troye Collins in action for Great Britain
Collins scored 19 goals for GB
Great Britain's wheelchair rugby team made it three wins out of three with a comfortable 41-30 victory over Germany.

The result ensures Britain qualify for the quarter-finals as Group B winners and are now set to play Japan, who are expected to finish last in Group A.

Troye Collins continued his impressive form with 19 points to sink Germany.

The 32-year-old is now the tournament's top scorer with 43 points, having bagged 13 against Belgium and 11 against Canada in the first two games.

"It was a great result," said Britain's coach Darren Ransome. "I felt comfortable throughout the game.

"In previous tournaments we have done well against the top teams, but stumbled in the easier games.

"We are trying to wipe out previous mistakes and go all the way in this tournament."

Collins added: "We have won three straight games to top our pool, but that means nothing unless we win our quarter-final.

"We believe we can go all the way. We are getting better every game.

"In the eight years I have been playing, this is our best squad by far. There is great depth in the squad."
