The Blues finally lost their unbeaten record in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, when they were beaten in Reading by London Irish in Round 4 of this season’s tournament. Despite that 23-34 defeat, the Blues are still neck and neck with the Exiles at the top of Pool 1. Having already beaten the Italians on their own ground by 33-18, the very least the Blues will expect at the Arms Park on Friday Evening, will be a try-scoring bonus-point win, which will put the pressure back on the Exiles, who don’t play Grenoble until Saturday.

While the Cardiff Blues and the Exiles should both qualify for the quarter finals, top spot in the Pool will almost certainly secure the vital prize of home advantage in the last eight.

Rovigo have lost all four of the fixtures that they have played in the Challenge Cup this season, conceding an average of nearly 50 points per game. The single point that they have secured, came in their last match, when they were beaten at home by Grenoble 17-20, a result that confirmed the Italians elimination. If Rovigo do spring a surprise on Friday evening, it would be just their fourth Challenge Cup win in 59 attempts.
