On a day when there were some important clashes being played out at the top of the Premiership, the headlines and the plaudits belonged to Tonmawr, the basement club who secured a first win of the season.
The hapless Afan Valley club entertained neighbouring city rivals Swansea and battled out a 19pts to 17 victory.
Back at the top end of the table both Neath and Pontypridd made the most of playing out a game in hand over leaders Llandovery, with valuable away wins on Gwent territory. Neath edged a close fought battle at Cross Keys by 15pts to 19 whilst Ponty added a try scoring bonus point to their 15pts to 25 win at Bedwas.
Llanelli pulled away handsomely in the second half away to Bridgend to notch up an emphatic 27pts to 40 win whilst Newport likewise progressed from an evenly balanced first half to win at home against Cardiff by 36pts to 19.
