"Finding out that the other two sides lost was a very pleasant surprise," Bonymaen forwards coach Ieuan Jones admitted. "It's a nice little bonus. We started a bit rusty against Ystrad - it took us about 25 minutes to really hit our straps - but then the tries started coming.
"I think we're playing a great brand of rugby. We're blending up front, and have the ability to spin the ball out wide. We like playing an open brand of rugby, and so do our fans, but we know we have to do the hard work up front, and we're not scared of doing it.
"We've got a tough game up at Merthyr next weekend - they're always hard to beat at home - so I guess it's back to the drawing board for us."

Beddau's chances weren't helped by the 24th-minute red card to Dean Barnes for punching.
Blackwood secured their first point of the season with a 16-all draw at home to Waunarlwydd, who continue to impress in their first season at this level.

Llangennech have racked up three victories already this season, but they came back to earth with a thud when Merthyr sent them home with a 34-8 hiding to think about.

Newbridge fly-half Greg Callow scored all the points in his side's tough 15-7 victory over Llanharan, with the Welfare Ground men keeping their visitors scoreless in a brave second-half performance.
