The Keys’ pre-season preparations will be wrapped up with a home friendly against Penallta on Thursday, August 22.
Bargoed put in a huge defensive shift but the strength of Pontypridd shone through as they scored four tries in victory at Bargoed Park.
Pontypridd have announced that Penallta full-back, Lloyd Rowlands, and captain Ross Morgan will be joining their ranks for the new season.
Both Bedwas and Pontypridd went into their penultimate Principality Premiership Tier One match knowing that a win would ensure a top-four finish. A stunning comeback by the hosts saw Bedwas claim the spoils in a dramatic finale and condemn Pontypridd to a shootout with RGC 1404 for the final play-off position next weekend.
Bargoed travelled to Sardis Road on an awful run of eight consecutive losses in the Principality Premiership, knowing that several of those matches had drifted away from them in the final quarter.
