Llandovery are also at the wrong end of the table as the season approaches the finish line, and their cause wasn't helped by a five-try mauling at home to Swansea. All Whites outside-half Stuart Thomas scored one of them and added 11 points with the boot in the 36-19 victory.
Bedwas are one of the hardest sides in the competition, and so it proved again as they crashed 34-16 at home to Glamorgan Wanderers.
Outside-half Gareth McCarthy kicked Wanderers to a nervy 13-10 lead at halftime, but his second-half try secured the victory.
Pontypool wingers Michael Poole and Daniel Hitchcock scored crucial tries as their club moved off the bottom of the table with a 21-10 win over Cross Keys. Sam Mills added four goals to leave Konica Minolta Cup semi-finalists Maesteg as the Premiership cellar dwellers.
