British teams entered into Sevens Grand Prix Series reach quarter-finals

Team GB's Olympic hopefuls should go head-to-head in another selection audition in Sunday's Exeter Sevens conclusion.

The two British teams entered into the Sevens Grand Prix Series event both topped their pools on Saturday, securing safe passage into the quarter-finals.

GB Royals will meet Georgia in the last eight on Sunday, while GB Lions will take on Russia, at Exeter's Sandy Park stadium.

The two British squads are odds-on to progress, and would then meet in the semi-finals.

Last weekend the Lions beat the Royals 27-14 in the final of London's Sevens in the City tournament, and now Team GB's players will face off in competitive action once again.

The Royals had the toughest fixture of either British side on Saturday, seeing off France 17-10, after thumping Portugal 31-0 and Poland 43-0.

The Lions shrugged off Belgium 31-5, Italy 31-0 and Germany 41-0, conceding just one try en route to the last eight.

Spain will meet Germany and France will take on Italy in the other quarter-finals.
