Pontypridd overcame two yellow cards in the second half to notch a third successive win in the Principality Premiership as they beat Cross Keys 28-11 at Pandy Park.
Two second half tries from centre Gavin Dacey added to Ponty's 13-3 interval lead to keep them out of danger, although when Keys flanker Scott Matthews crossed for a try to cut the gap to 8-13 anything seemed possible.
But the visitors kept their nerve, held their line, even though they lost both Wayne O'Connor and Tom Young to the sin-bin, and emerged victorious. Outside half Simon Humberstone ended the game with 18 points thanks to a try, two conversions and three penalties.

Newport were ahead 10-9 at the break after impressive centre Tyler Morgan had crossed for the first try of the game. Ethan Davies added the conversion and a penalty in the first half, while a penalty try after the break was converted by Matt O'Brien, who also added a penalty.
