Llanelli came away from the Talbot Athletic ground with a try bonus point but all the glory went to Aberavon in this exciting Principality Premiership match.
When Llanelli clawed their way back to 22-31 on 60 minutes it looked like they could possibly produce a much needed away win. However, Aberavon finished the match like they had played throughout the match, producing a top all round performance against the shell-shocked Champions.
Wing Richard Carter scored a classy hatrick, with one each from Blues hooker Marc Breeze, Rhydian Geriat ,replacement Ricky Thomas and Llanelli boy Rich Thomas. Outside half Jamie Davies past the 100 point mark in the league with five conversions and one penalty.
For defenceless Llanelli wing Iolo Evans, Number 8 Allan Powell, Nic Reynolds and Jordon Williams scored tries with Jordon kicking three conversions and one penalty.
