Hosts Denmark and Britain claimed comfortable victories on the first day of the World Wheelchair Rugby Championship in Vejle.

The Danes swaggered confidence at the DGI Huset recreational centre to defeat Group B opponents 62-45 on court one.

Danish star Sebastian Frederiksen commended the home crowd for its backing of the players.

"The crowd was great," he said.

"It's great to have people come out, the people of Vejle, and the people of Denmark to get behind us."

Britain, who are bidding to become the first European side to win the Paralympics and World Championship, recorded a similar score, 66-43, to overcome Switzerland in Group A.

The Swiss had impressed in leading for much of the first quarter, but Britain hit back to assert their dominance.

Ten matches are scheduled to be held tomorrow, with defending champions Japan in action twice.

Japan are first set to face Colombia before taking on Denmark.

Britain are also due to return to court one, where they are due to meet Germany.

The most eye-catching fixture in tomorrow's schedule is Wheelchair Rugby Quad Nations winners Canada contesting 2018 World Championship runners-up Australia.
