Newbridge picked up a much-needed bonus point with a 33-5 victory over Pontypool in the Swalec Championship.
Only three games were played due to a clash with the Swalec Cup, but fourth place Newbridge made the most of their chance to close the gap on the three teams ahead of them in the table.
Tries from Ryan Lee, Dwain Dyer, Stuart Davies, Stephan Morgan and Jordan Richards, as well as four conversions from Neil Burnett, were enough to secure a comprehensive away win for Newbridge.
To compound a bad day for Pontypool the only team beneath them in the table, Whitland, picked up a losing bonus point in their Pembrokeshire derby defeat against Narberth, 19-13.
