Guernsey's basketballers, rugby players and table tennis teams enjoyed a number of wins this weekend, while the Priaulx league title was decided too.

Rovers won the domestic league title for a second year running, having made history when they won the 2016/16 season - the club's first Priaulx league title.

The Port Soif side beat Saint Martins one nil at home to claim a second successive title thanks to a goal from Carlos Canha. 

 In rugby, Guernsey Raiders secured their promotion to National Two with an at home win against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

The 38-23 win puts the Raiders into the fourth tier of the RFU leagues for the first time in the club's history. 

The Junior Siam Cup which was also played this weekend saw the under 13s beat Jersey 7 - 2 while the Colts lost 31 - 11. 

In Jersey, the Sarnian successes continued with a clean sweep of wins at the Basketball inter insulars. 

The men beat Jersey 85 - 55, the women won 69 - 23, the under 21s defeated Jersey 61- 67 and the under 17s won 43-80.

In the table tennis inter insulars Guernsey won the Green Trophy after beating Jersey in the majority of matches.
