CAERPHILLY 32 EDINBURGH 66
Caerphilly have broken an unenviable Celtic League record. The Virginia Park team held the tournament record for most points conceded when Connacht beat them 62-0 last season.
They went one better on Saturday, allowing Edinburgh to waltz in for 66 points, scoring 32 in reply.
Mercurial New Zealand fullback Brendan Laney supplied 31 points, including two tries, and things would have been much worse for Caerphilly if visiting coach Frank Hadden hadn't thrown his reserves on at halftime when leading 52-13.
Caerphilly actually won the second half 19-14, and their five tries gave Mark Ring's side a bonus point.
The former Wales star has brought an attractive running game to Virginia Park, but he'll have to get the tackle bags out at training if Caerphilly are going to win anything this season.
They've lost all four Celtic League matches this season, to remain winless in the tournament's history, and have conceded 154 points in the past three weekends.
Ring was proud of his side's effort in the second half against "the best team we have played this season."
"All the players are looking forward to facing Swansea next week after their second half display," Ring said.
"Edinburgh were by far the best side we've played this season - much better than Llanelli. The problem was we hung off them and gave them too much respect in the first half."
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 skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
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.
