The All Blacks' pack powered them to victory in the Konica Minolta Cup semi-final at the Millennium Stadium.

The experienced Hywel Jenkins, Brett Sinkinson, Paul Jones and Mark Jones were prominent as the plucky Ravens were denied the platform to compete.

Gareth Morris, Richard Johnston, Kevin James and Jenkins crossed for tries, Matthew Jones kicking nine points.

Bridgend kept trying and were rewarded with a late try for Nathan Strong to add to Austin Powell's three kicks.

Neath will meet Caerphilly in the final at the Millennium Stadium on 8 May.

Bridgend: A Carter, A Havili, S James, R Dyke, A Bishop, A Howells, B Roach (capt), G Thomas, A Phillips, G Alexander, H Alford, M Powell, M Thomas, D Fitzgerald, N Strong.

Replacements: R James, T Snellgrove, P Morgan, R Long, P Smithson, M Jeffreys, C Burton.

Neath: G Morris, K James, E Seveali'i, W Mitchell, R Johnston, M Jones, R Morgan, P Jones (capt), D Poland, A Howells, M Jones, L Bateman, B Sinkinson, J McPhail, H Jenkins.

Referee: Nigel H Williams (WRU).
