Storm were at home to fellow newcomers Saltash Essayons in the South West Premier, where James Irvings late try saw them snatch a 22-20 win at Pottington Road. Storm had taken the lead in the first half through Ashlee Crouch, with Irving kicking the conversion, but Essayons pulled back, scoring two tries to go ahead. A try from Andy Kay in the corner pulled Storm back level before half time. Saltash took the lead again in the second half before Crouch got his second of the game, and after the visitors went out to 20-16 ahead, Irving crossed before converting his own try with minutes remaining to get a win for the hosts. Casey Godman was named Storms man of the match after a superb all-round performance. Chairman Neil Edwards said: The win didnt sink in for a couple of days, its been 11 months of work up to this moment. We wanted to show were not just here to make up the numbers and the lads were brilliant. Its the South West Premiers magic weekend on Saturday, with Storm playing Cornish Rebels at Newton Abbot.
