The Steelmen scored eight tries at Eugene Cross Park to secure their 21st win from 21 games of a remarkable season.

Flanker Ronny Kynes, back row Cameron Regan, fly-half Dan Haymond, wing Wes Cunliffe (2), lock Ashley Sweet and centre David James ran in tries while they also earned a penalty try.

It is a fourth title on the spin for Ebbw, who will now look to go complete a perfect season before returning to the top flight.
