Bedwas have extended their lead at the top of the Principality Premiership after coming from behind to beat battling Aberavon.
The home side found themselves seven points behind lowly Avon with tries from Sam Williams and Stef Andrews ensuring the travelers led 14-7 at half-time. However, a hat-trick from Rory Budina and further tries from Matthew John, Dean Gunter and Matthew Pewtner secured a valuable bonus point for the hosts. The result gave Aberavon a welcomed bonus point, but they stay only a point off the bottom.
Elsewhere, a comprehensive 36-3 for Pontypridd over rivals Neath at Sardis Road keeps Ponty in second place. A penalty by Dean Cummins provided tenth-placed Neath's only consolation.
