In Lloyds TSB Welsh League Division One, Brynmawr's unbeaten tag ended at Narberth as the Otters won 21-0, but Llanharan, 43-3 winners over UWIC, and Maesteg, who defeated Treorchy by a massive 112-0, kept going. Blackwood's run also ended as their young side fell for the first time as they went down by 38-10 at Llangennech, where home fly half Mark Jones scored 28 points.
Abercynon had knocked Merthyr off the top of Division Two East a week earlier, as they now repeated the act against new leaders Hirwaun and these two wins have taken the 'Cynon', with a full side of home-grown talent, to the top themselves.
