Britain's women were beaten by Australia and left to rue a second period in which they conceded three quick goals.
At 4-0 down with a little more than fifteen minutes to go, Britain staged a valiant fightback, goals from Hollie Pearne-Webb and Tess Howard offering a glimmer of hope.
Unfortunately Mark Hager's side had left themselves too much to do, but the home crowd will have gone home with the knowledge of a much improved final quarter.
Next up are two exciting games, firstly the Dutch in a sold-out match and then New Zealand at the Twickenham Stoop on Sunday 23 June.
Starting XI: Hinch (GK), Toman, Martin, Townsend, Petty, Howard, Defroand, Ansley, Pearne-Webb (c), Burge, Balsdon
