And congratulations to Pontypridd Youth for winning the WRU National Cup

"Pontypridd have claimed a top place finish in the Principality Premiership for a fifth consecutive season.
A 33pts to 14 bonus point home win over Aberavon on Tuesday evening 14th April was enough to
take Ponty into an unassailable lead at the head of the Premiership table.
Whilst the battle for the Premiership crown will have to wait until the Play-Off Final in mid May,
Ponty can claim the honour of being league champions for the fifth time in a row"
