Aberystwyth have been promoted to Division 2 West after beating Tondu 13-9 in a keenly contested affair at Kidwelly in a Division 3 play-off match.
The match could have gone either way at halftime, with the scores locked at 3-3. Fly half Jason Rees knocked over a penalty for Aberystwyth which was cancelled out by Dean Thomas.
In the second spell the heavens opened as the 'Waterwheelers', who were runners-up in Division Three South West and boast Welsh internationals Lee Byrne and Gavin Thomas among their former players, had to play second fiddle to the Ceredigion outfit.
Full back Paul Stubbs raced over for a well worked try which Rees improved further with a conversion. Rees added two further penalties while Thomas responded with two for Tondu but it wasn't enough as the Ceredigion outfit celebrated a well deserved victory and promotion.
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.
