Great Britain 29-3 Brazil
A spirited second half performance from Great Britain women's team helped them overcome Brazil by a margin of 29-3 in their opening game of the Rio Olympics 2016 on Saturday.
GB sevens managed a slender lead of 7-3 by the half-time with Joanne Watmore being the lone try-scorer in the game as Brazil's Paula Ishibashi looked threatening at the first-half.
However, the second-half saw a much improved performance by the Great Britain womens as Natasha Hunt struck twice in two minutes which was followed by tries from Jasmine Joyce and Emily Scott to take the tally to 29 points as compared to Britain, who failed to add any point after the half time.
In the other game of Group C, Canada trounced Japan 45-0 while France defeated Spain and Kenya in the opening round. Fiji, Australia and New Zealand were the other victorious teams.
Great Britain player and England World Cup winner Danielle Waterman said the team showed great character after a shaky start.
"The atmosphere is cracking. It is pretty warm, but we have been out here for a while, so we are used to it.
"It was a shaky start, but we got the win and we are going to go back to the drawing board and make sure we stick to our processes.
"This tournament is a massive moment for women's rugby, being at the Olympic Games, and we are really honoured to be flying the flag."
