A PACKED crowd watched an enthralling rugby encounter at Sandown on Friday night.

Sandown and Shanklin played the Isle of Wight in the first Island derby of the season, under the floodlights at The Fairway.

The home side won the match 30-24 but both sides played their part in the spectacle.

Ventnor also picked up a much-needed victory yesterday (Saturday), as they beat Farnborough 15-9.
