Eastleigh RFC’s season just keeps getting better.

Promotion out of London 3 South-West was the name of the game for the club at the beginning of the campaign.

They are well on track to achieving that goal and are now just one match away from putting another cup on the shelf at Bishopstoke Road.

Eastleigh, still unbeaten this season, and leaders Farnham look to have the two promotion places wrapped up - and top spot is at stake when the two come face to face in Surrey this Saturday.

But Eastleigh have also been moving along nicely in the Gales HSB Hampshire Bowl and secured a place in the final at the weekend when they beat Southampton University Medics 29-7.

Plenty of first XV players were rested to prepare for the Farnham clash, but the side still proved too strong for their opponents.

Onlooker and regular second row Russell Smith said: “We made 11 changes to the team that beat USP the previous week.

“We had a handful of first team players, a good load of second team players and a couple of thirds.”

He added: “Promotion was the main aim for us but promotion and a cup would mean the world.

“Winning the league and a cup would just be something else but that is a long way off.”

Winger Cam Steele got two of Eastleigh’s tries against the Medics with flanker Ian Scott and second row Ben Page also going over the line.

Eastleigh will have to wait to find out who they will face in the final, either Trojans or Basingstoke, which is scheduled for April 2.

The Trojans v Basingstoke semi-final game was called off by the north Hampshire side and the clubs’ league fixture on March 4 at Down Grange will now be a double-header.
