Cardiff Blues travel into the French Alps on Saturday to take on Top 14 opponents Grenoble in a Pool 1 European Rugby Challenge Cup fixture at the Stade Lesdiguieres. The Blues who currently lie second in the Pool, need to better the result that London Irish achieve in Italy against the part-timers of Rovigo, if they are to finish top of the qualifying Pool, and assure themselves of a quarter-final spot.

Even defeat to the French club may not stop the Welsh Region from reaching the last eight. They have accumulated 19 points from their first five fixtures, more than any other second placed side in the tournament. The French club will be eliminated whatever the outcome of Saturday's match, which may well suit the Alpine outfit. They currently stand in sixth position in the Top 14 league table, just a point clear of Toulouse, and it may well benefit them in their quest for a play-off place in the domestic competition, not to have the distraction of European competition for too much longer.

When the sides met at the Arms Park back in October, the Cardiff Blues won a comfortable 37-14 victory, Grenoble's only Challenge Cup wins this season have come against Rovigo, including a 68-10 home win.
