Cardiff Blues and London Irish who clash at the Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday in Round 3 of Pool 1's qualifying fixtures in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, have seized a firm hold on the Pool in the opening rounds. Saturday's protagonists have both recorded two try-scoring bonus point victories so far, giving them a maximum 10 points, while the other two sides that complete the Pool, Rovigo and Grenoble, have yet to even pick up a losing bonus point.

The Cardiff Blues can boast of an astonishing winning record in the Challenge Cup, having a 100% winning record in the tournament. They have played and won all five fixtures that they have played. Three matches in 2010 when they were catapulted into the competition from the Heineken Cup, and went on to defeat Toulon in the final, for their only European trophy, and two further matches in the current campaign.

The Exiles themselves have a Challenge Cup final in their history, but they have to go back to 2006 for their only appearance, when they lost a thrilling match to Gloucester 34-36 after extra time. However they face an Exiles side who are seasoned-campaigners in the Challenge Cup, finalists in 2006, and have started this season's campaign in even better form than the Blues.
