'Wegians got one over on their former coach Paul Young, who is now is charge of Highfield, to set up a New Year clash with Nenagh Ormond.
A try from South African centre Chris Brigl helped the hosts on their way to a 13-3 half-time lead.
Further touchdowns from Matt Brandon and Liam Casserly made it 27-3.
And while injuries forced 'Wegians to finish the game with 14 players and Highfield managed to rally with late tries from Peter Martin and Anthony Wise, this was a deserved home win.
