We are back!

The Hurricanes finally get back onto the field this weekend and will welcome Southsea Nomads to the Fairway for the first competitive fixture to played in over eighteen months at Hurricanes HQ. Following the conclusion of what was a very successful 2019/20 season, Sandown & Shanklin RFC 2nd XV finished 3rd in Hampshire Three, and were promoted into Hampshire Two as a result. Then followed the prolonged exodus of rugby and any social activity with Covid, but now the time has come to take back to the field with friends ands teammates.

The promotion will prove to a be a stern test, coming up against more established 2nd XV teams, and equally even more fully fledged 1st XV sides, however, testing themselves is nothing knew for the Hurricanes. The regular competition will surely provide a great proving ground for up and coming youngsters, as well as a good standard for the veterans of rugby at Sandown & Shanklin, alongside those pushing for places and selection in the 1st XV.

This season will see the team being led by Co-Captains, Michael Cooper and Adam Tyas. Michael with his years of experience playing for both the the 1st and 2nd XV's over the years will be invaluable leading the back line. Whilst Adam providing the foundations and knowledge in the forwards. They will no doubt form a dynamic combination between themselves for the forthcoming season, helping provide the required support and guidance for players.
We wish the boys all the best and look forward to supporting them under the floodlights this Friday evening. The Clubhouse and bar will be open from 6.00pm, with kick-off commencing from 7.15pm. If you haven't told Adam or Michael you are available, or fancy bringing your boots for a run out, do let them know!
