Result: Great Britain lose to Japan in final wheelchair rugby game

Great Britain are knocked out of the wheelchair rugby after defeat to Japan in the final group game.

Great Britain have lost their final Group A game to Japan after fading in the match.

The first quarter, although very close, went to plan for the Brits and they found themselves 14-13 up in a period lacking the violence of previous games.

However, Japan were rock solid in defence in the second quarter and were able to counter at will as Britain could not find a way through. At the half the score was 26-18 to the Japanese.

Britain were better in the third, but Japan increased their lead heading into the final quarter and were 41-29 up.

The lead meant Japan could ease up in final period, with GB unable to cut into the deficit as Japan took a 51-39 win.

The result means that GB are out and will not go through to compete for a medal.
