Treviso created history as they secured their first ever RaboDirect PRO12 bonus point win as they thrashed Newport Gwent Dragons 50-24 at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo.
Australian winger Brendan Williams scored two tries on his 200th appearance for the Italian club with Ludovico Nitoglia, Alessandro Zanni, and replacements Robert Barbieri, Paul Derbyshire and Tobias Botes also crossing the whitewash.
Tonderai Chavhanga scored two tries for the Dragons and Steffan Jones also touched down but it was not enough to stop improving Treviso earning their fourth win in a row - having lost their opening three - while consigning Newport to a fifth defeat in seven RaboDirect PRO12 games this season.
