Caerphilly advance to face Neath in the final of the Konica Minolta Cup after a thrilling fightback against Aberavon at the Millennium Stadium.

The Cheesemen trailed 15-10 at half-time after a brace of tries from Wizards wing Daran Griffiths.

But an unanswered 17-point blast within eight minutes of the restart swung it to Caerphilly.

A Dan Hawkins try got Aberavon back to within five points, but Stuart Thomas' fine kicking secured the game.

The final, to be played on the 8 May at the Millennium Stadium, will be the first for the Cheesemen.
