Great Britain women’s rugby team secured their place in the Olympic semi-finals after a 25-7 win over Fiji.

Abigail Brown scored Britain’s first try of the game within the opening 30 seconds after Emily Scarratt won the ball from Team GB’s kick-off.

Fiji responded with a lengthy period of possession, with a string of passes seeing the island nation move the ball 70m before scoring with Litia Naiqato going over the line.

It took Britain only 30 seconds to respond, with a long kick by Mclean down the middle being chased down by Watmore.

The back then offloaded the ball to Amy Wilson-Hardy who fended off a Fiji back to go over; Mclean would add her second conversion of the night to restore Britain’s seven-point lead.

That lead was then extended to 12 on the hooter after Britain took full advantage of a knock on before Watmore scored in the corner, however, Mclean missed her first drop conversion of the night to keep the score 19-7 at half-time.

Emily Scarrett almost opened the second half scoring in spectacular fashion; with no Fijian back the captain launched a huge kick that she chased down herself, before dribbling the ball mere meters to the line before being brought down by a Fiji player.

Brown who has had a quiet tournament before this game scored her second try after a long pass by Watmore.

Even though the conversion was missed it essentially secured Team GB’s place in the semi-finals.
