Aberystwyth finally kick-started their campaign in style after claiming their first success of the season in Division Two.
It was billed as the basement battle against Pencoed at Plascrug but the home side proved too hot to handle on their way to a valuable 28-11 win.

Maesteg continued their early season form after running in three tries in their hard-fought 26-10 win at home to Ammanford.
In Division Three there were few problems for pacesetters Newcastle Emlyn who emerged victors in a ten-try, 43-32 thriller against Wales wing Leigh Halfpenny's local club Gorseinon or Morrison who won 38-3 at bottom club Llanybydder.
Tumble stormed past Pontarddulais 36-7 in the top of the table clash in Division Four while it was a pleasing day for their main challengers after narrow wins for Amman United, Cefneithin and Milford Haven.
