Great Britain dominated the first day of the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series in Gdynia, Poland.

In their last opportunity to fine tune their preparations for this summer's Olympic Games Britain's two teams, the Royals and the Lions, completed a clean sweep of three victories each to top their groups.

The Royals opened with a 42-0 thumping of Lithuania and then saw off Italy 36-7 and Germany 33-7.

The Lions edged past Georgia 15-14 in their first match before beating Poland 33-14 and France 26-12.

The Lions will face Italy in Sunday's quarter-finals while the Royals take on Georgia. Russia meet Germany and France play Spain.

The 12 players who have been selected to represent Team GB at Rio this summer by coach Simon Amor will be announced on Tuesday.
