Bath will entertain Cardiff Blues at the Rec on Saturday, knowing that a win will put them on the brink of qualification for the semi-finals of this season's LV Anglo Welsh Cup. Indeed, if they complete a victory, and results go their way elsewhere, they will have qualified this weekend, with still a round of matches to play.

The Blues, however, appear to have little chance of progressing. Currently lying in third position in Pool 2, behind Sale Sharks, and the Pool leaders, Leicester Tigers, who are the only side in the Pool to have won both their matches so far.

The halcyon days of 2009, when the Blues were the last Welsh region to appear in the final of the Anglo Welsh Cup, smashing Gloucester by 50-12, seem like a long distant memory.

If Cardiff, hadn't slipped to the most unlikely of defeats to the Worcester Warriors at the Arms Park in round one, then they would be very much in the mix to progress to the knockout stages, but that result was indicative of the up and down season that the Blues have incurred. The loss to the Warriors being balanced against a stunning victory against the European Champions, Toulon at the Arms Park in the Heineken Cup.
