Sandown and Shanklin RFC will gain promotion to the eighth level of the national league structure today (Saturday), with victory against Weybridge Vandals.

The Hurricanes have been on fine form throughout the season – storming their way to victory in their final league game last weekend.

They defeated Portsmouth II 88-5 to finish as runners-up in the Hampshire Premier.

This weekend, they will face even stiffer competition in the form of Weybridge – who themselves came second in Surrey 1 division.

Victory will see one of the two sides go up to the London South West (LSW) 3.

The game gets underway at 3pm at the Fairway.
