Ebbw Vale took another big step towards the Division One East title with a comprehensive victory over the Ironmen in the 'Metal Derby'..
If the truth be told, the game was over as a contest in the first quarter when the visitors were reduced to 14 men due to a stamp by the Merthyr tight head. In fact, just before half time, 14 played 12, as another 3 had entered the bin.
2 tries from Nicky Coughlin, and one each from Ashley Sweet, Tristran Davies, Dan Ajuwa, and Charlie Simpson confimred the bonus point win.
