The SWALEC League season may be only five weeks old but already Llantrisant have sent an ominous warning to the rest of Division Two East with their unbeaten start.
They were made to work hard for their fourth victory on the bounce, 25-19 at Abergavenny, but tries from Martin Bettinson, two, Rhys King and Jonathan Williams ensured the Black Army have only dropped two of a maximum 20 points.
The bonus point opened a four-point advantage over second place Gilfach Goch who won 5-0 at Abercynon after Andrew Pridy's try proved enough to settle a dour game.
Similarly Tredegar's Leighton Simms grabbed the only try, proving enough to see off Rhydyfelin 8-6 while Richard John and Mark McKee denied Treherbert a first win as Fleur de Lys leapt to sixth place with a 12-9 win.
Nelson stormed to the top of Division Three East after brushing aside New Tredegar with ease, 29-3, while Gwernyfed crashed 29-20 at Rhymney. Pontypool United overcame Pill Harriers 16-6.
Llantwit Fardre took advantage of leaders Treorchy's postponed game by jumping three places into pole position by comfortably beating Aberdare 39-5. Paul Davies scored twice along with Dean Thomas, James Allen and Kieran Evans.
Machen were beaten for the first time in Division Four by a late drop goal as Tredegar Ironsides clinched a dramatic 23-22 win
Luke Jarvis scored late to keep Abercwmboi top of Division Five with a 5-3 win over Heol y Cyw. Abercarn beat Blaenavon 24-0 to stay top of Division Five East while Barry are now six points clear in Division Five south-east after running three tries in a 25-16 home win over Old Penarthians.
