Brits reach rugby semis
Troye Collins in action for Great Britain
Collins scored 21 goals for GB
Great Britain moved into the last four of the wheelchair rugby after beating Japan 50-42 on Thursday.

Team GB were always in front, despite a plucky performance from the number eight seeds, as they sealed their place in Friday's semi-final.

Troye Collins continued his impressive form with 21 points, while Shinichi Shimakawa top-scored for Japan on 17.

Britain next take on New Zealand after the Kiwis defeated Belgium 40-33 in their quarter-final on Thursday.

Collins said: "We have to take each game as it comes - we've just got to turn up and keep doing what we've been doing.

"There is such a good morale among the players and a real buzz in the team."

World champions Canada play Australia on Thursday evening for the chance to meet the United States in the semi-finals the following day.

The USA beat Germany 46-3 in the first-quarter final.

Britain's semi-final is at 1700 on Friday with a final beckoning on Saturday evening.
