Elsewhere, Ebbw Vale made it six wins on the spin as they won 36-26 at Llanelli. The result sees them sit 4th with 38 points, behind Llandovery in 3rd with 42 points. However, Llandovery’s fourth straight win means they are just 10 points (two bonus-point wins) away from Cardiff in top spot, with two games in hand.
