Pontypridd came away from the Principality Premiership Awards Dinner with the lion's share of the prizes, Paul John winning the Coach of the Year and Geraint Walsh picking up the Player of the Year awards.
Walsh also collected the award for Try of the Season with one of his nine scores of the season against Llandovery in March
The double Principality Premiership and Cup champions also received the Fair Play Award for the club with the best discipline record having picked up the least yellow and red cards.
The Best Newcomer award went to Cross Keys flanker Scott Matthews who is currently in New Zealand with the Wales Under 20 squad ahead of the Junior World Championship.
Gwyn Morris was voted referee of the season by the Principality Premiership coaches while there was recognition for the top try and points scorers. Rory Budina scored 12 tries, 11 for Bedwas and one for Newport while Geraint O'Driscoll (Newport) notched up 230 league points.
The Unsung Hero award was awarded posthumously to Byron Mugford, the former Swansea player and honorary secretary, and secretary of the Premier Division who passed away in October.
Members of the Probable and Possible squads preparing for Friday's Senior Wales Trial were present at the event - Probables captain Alun Wyn Jones, along with centre Jamie Roberts and Rhodri Williams who starts on the Probables bench, and Andrew Coombs who will start for the Possibles. All four players cut their teeth in the Principality Premiership, and Alun Wyn Jones and Andrew Coombs are former recipients of the Best Newcomer and Player of the Year awards respectively.
WRU Group Chief Executive Roger Lewis said, "The Principality Premiership has grown year on year, and this evening, we were able to recognise and honour just some of the talent and hard work that is seen on and off the field week in, week out in the Principality Premiership.
"The Principality Premiership is a vital part of the player pathway, underpinning professional regional rugby in Wales.
"Great strides have been made in recent years, with clubs understanding the need to close the gap between semi-professional and professional rugby and to provide a modern and welcoming environment for supporters."
Alun Wyn Jones, who presented the Best Newcomer award said, "Playing rugby at Premiership level helped me a lot. You learn from the players and coaches around you and develop so much in a short space of time. Scott (Matthews) is a credit to his club Cross Keys and the Principality Premiership. I wish him and the rest of the Wales Under 20 side all the very best for the Junior World Championship in New Zealand."
