Squad looking to match London 2012 finish
Jim Roberts top-scored as ParalympicsGB outclassed hosts Brazil in their final wheelchair rugby group game in Rio.
Great Britain, whose squad includes east London’s Bulbul Hussain, lost by two points to defending Paralympic champions Australia and went down in overtime to top seeds Canada.
That meant they were playing for pride against Brazil and they won 52-32 with ease, to mean they will now play-off for fifth - the same place they achieved four years ago.
Roberts took his tournament tally to 75 with a 27-goal haul as Great Britain won every quarter.
They will face Sweden in the fifth-sixth place classification match at the weekend.
