The defending champions, who won the competition in its last season as the Pro12, completed a clean sweep of their fellow Welsh provinces in emphatic fashion, having already beaten Cardiff Blues and the Ospreys twice.

James Davies, Tom Prydie, Dan Jones, Aled Davies, Aaron Shingler, Will Boyde and Rhys Jones all crossed for scores, heaping misery on a Dragons side that has won just two of their 13 games this season.

Meanwhile, South African side Southern Kings remain winless, Edinburgh making it three wins in four with a 37-7 victory.

Edinburgh were nilled by Glasgow Warriors last weekend and came close to serving up a shutout of their own against the former Super Rugby team.

Jaco van der Walt kicked 12 of Edinburgh’s points while Grant Gilchrist, Blair Kinghorn, Duhan van der Merwe and Cameron Fenton went over to make it 32-0.

Six minutes from time Ntabeni Dukisa got the Kings on the board but Dougie Fife ensured Edinburgh had the final say to round off a dominant performance.
