Team GB 22-0 Canada: British girls ease into quarter-finals unbeaten

  • Team GB win Pool C after overcoming Canada 22-0 in Rio
  • Alice Richardson and Amy Wilson Hardy both dotted down to give the girls a 10-0 lead at the interval
  • A brace from captain Emily Scarratt secured the win after the restart 
Team GB women have topped Pool C after they outclassed Canada in what was their best performance yet in Rio.

Both Canada and Great Britain racked up a number of tries in their opening two games of Pool C but it was Team GB who continued to impress when they clashed on Sunday.

After a tight and tense opening, Team GB opened the scoring through Alice Richardson before Amy Wilson Hardy dotted down a sensational 80m+ try after the hooter to give her side a commanding lead, 10-0.

Indiscipline saw both teams down to six players. However, despite the numerical disadvantage, GB extended their lead with Emily Scarratt running in a superb brace to secure the win.
