Full-back Lee Glanville scored the west Wales club's hundredth try of the season before centre Gary Evans and scrum-half Andrew Jenkins followed.
But it was the forwards who lay the foundations for their 21st win of the campaign along with their water-tight defence that has proved the best in the league.
Team manager Frank Setaro said: "Finishing second would be a massive achievement for the club and something that no-body else believed we could do.
"Everyone thought we would be a mid-table side but the boys have really clicked since the New Year and now we're really playing some good rugby.
"Newbridge came down here with a big pack but our forwards were magnificent and did the job to create tries for our backs while our defence was as good as ever. This certainly gives us all a lot of confidence for where the club is going."
