1st game back from the summer break see Storm take on Clock face in a tough group A encounter.
With only 11 players and no subs Newton gave everything over the 40 mins ,
Playing some fantastic rugby that got high praise from the opposition coaches newton were pipped and lost 12-16
This was a fantastic achievement considering Storm had no subs and Clock face could interchange when needing to give there forwards a rest .
With the forward pack lead by Bon Carrol ( Man of Mach ) they set a great platform for the backs to show some skill and carve out chance after chance through out a ferocious game of rugby.
2 tries were disallowed as the referee deemed both to be knock on's ,
On both occasions the ball was grounded perfectly only for the ball to skid of the wet grass looking as if knocked on .
Not deterred , Storm travel to Rylands on Sunday looking again to put a great performance in.
