Rugby: Success for Island clubs

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.

The IW, who lost to Romsey in the previous week in Hampshire 1, ran out 35-5 winners against Chineham.

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.
