Big wins were the order of the night in the Celtic League on Friday.
Llanelli hammered arch-rivals Swansea 62-6, Leinster belted a winless Newport 42-14, and Borders upset fellow Scottish side Glasgow 33-12.
All the drama was at Stradey Park, where referee David McHugh showed red cards to Swansea pair Gavin Henson and Dean Thomas in the first half to end the match as a contest.
Llanelli ran in tries at will, with fly-half Stephen Jones picking up 32 points.
The loss continues a sorry season for Swansea under Australian coach John Connolly, but not as sorry as Newport's. The Black and Ambers are now nine matches for nine losses as their horrible season continued in Dublin.
Leinster's Irish international scrum-half Brian O'Meara kicked 22 points in the four-tries-to-none drubbing of Newport.
With six straight defeats the Black and Ambers will have to scrub this Celtic League campaign and focus their efforts on the upcoming challenges of the Heineken Cup and Welsh Premiership.
In the Scottish derby Borders shock win over Glasgow means the Glaswegians are struggling to earn a home quarter-final.
This is the result many Borders supporters had been predicting, if form continues on the same upward spiral next season, Borders could make a serous challenge for top eight status. Borders finish their debut Celtic League season away to Newport next weekend.
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.

Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
