Sandown and Shanklin players celebrate yesterday's victory against Romsey
SANDOWN and Shanklin and the IW both won yesterday (Saturday), while Ventnor gained a spirited draw.
The Hurricanes were impressive during their 25-8 victory against Romsey, largely thanks to a dominant second half performance.

Scrum half Brett Evans scored a hat-trick for the IW at Wootton.
Ventnor bounced back from their opening day defeat with a hard-earned 22-22 draw against New Milton and District.
Sam Lines scored two tries for Ventnor, before they defended superbly to see out the game.
