Tonmawr tonk Foel to put title in reach; SWALEC WRU NATIONAL LEAGUE ROUND-UPS: Division One.

TONMAWR are a hair's breadth from clinching the Division One West title after tonking visitors Felinfoel in an 11-try 81-3 rout.

Elliot Frewen grabbed a try hattrick, Gareth John and Ejike Ozoigwe scored two apiece, while Craig Moses, Steffan Andrews, Daniel Roberts and Tall Selley added one each. Luke Richards converted 10 tries and added two penalties.

Tonmawr need just one point at Bridgend Athletic next week to be crowned champions.

Second-placed Whitland ground out a 22-9 win over Llangennech, Ryan Michael running in their try, James Stevenson kicking 14 points and Carwyn Jones dropping a goal, while Rhys Lane replied with three penalties.

The two clubs who look doomed upset the odds. Builth Wells beat Bridgend 24-8 and Cwmllynfell, after eight losses, edged Narberth 22-21, Matthew Nolan scoring two tries and Daniel Jones one.

The Corus v Carmarthen Athletic game saw a fine display of open and fast rugby, the Steelmen taking the honours 54-24 in an 11-try match.

Bridgend Athletic ended Bonymaen's slim title hopes in a 20-19 nailbiter. Aled Thomas ran in the winning try and Steven Lewis landed five penalties.

In One East, leaders Uwic edged to a 32-26 win at Merthyr. Simon Humberstone was the students' star as he scored a try, five penalties and a conversion for 22 points. Second-placed Bargoed put basement club Caerphilly to the sword 47-0 and Llanharan pounded Ystrad Rhondda 46-12. Lee Thorne ran in two of the Dairymen's six tries and Codey Rees kicked 14 points.

Tredegar won the mid-table clash at Rumney 47-25. Luke James ran in a brace and Darren Pearce kicked four conversions and three penalties in a 17-point haul while lowly Bedlinog scored an 18-12 win over Beddau.
