Chatwin was in scorching form, with two of his tries starting from the half way line, while Sion Summers, Louis Millar, Chris Hole and Joe Casella also crossed the whitewash in a magnificent seven-try salvo – with Chatwin also adding three conversions for good measure.

Although Quins deserve credit for their late rally, which saw them score three tries in the final 15 minutes through Xavier Thomas, Lewis Haines and Paul Adams – with Adams converting two of them – after his earlier penalty.

Rhiwbina sit second and two points behind leaders Penallta – who maintained their own 100 per cent record as they ran out 29-20 at Garndiffaith- with Rhys Silcox, Elliott Keep and Joeseph Scrivens all among the scorers for the Pitmen.

Elsewhere Senghenydd are five points back in third after they made it five wins out of six with a 29-18 home win over basement boys Llanishen – who remain winless.

Glamorgan Wanderers were 44-8 home victors against Fleur De Lys while Nelson were 30-21 home winners over struggling Blaenavon, who themselves are still searching for that first win. Rumney, meanwhile,  recorded a 26-21 win at Risca.

In One East Central, Gilfach Goch ended leaders Beddau’s unbeaten start to the campaign as they edged out the Green and Golds 10-6.

The home side’s Matthew Llewellyn went over for the only try of the game while Josh Lewis added the extras and a penalty as they secured just their third win.

Meanwhile a hat-trick from Luke Studley helped second-place Rhydyfelin to their fifth win of the season as they dispatched Ynysybwl 32-17.

Mountain Ash – in third - only trail Rhydyfelin on points difference after their 34-7 home defeat of second bottom Dowlais.

Treorchy beat bottom side Llantrisant 24-17 with the struggling visitors slipping to their seventh straight defeat.

Elsewhere in the division there were also wins for Bedlinog and Ystrad Rhondda over Llantwit Fardre and Heol y Cyw respectively.

Gerwyn Davies, David Gratton and Ryan Howells went over for Ystrad Rhondda with Rhys Truelove adding two conversions and a penalty.
