If Cardiff Blues can repeat their success of last week against London Irish on Saturday in Reading at the Madejski Stadium, they will all but seal their place in the last eight of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. A win for the Exiles however, may leave top place in the Pool being decided ultimately by the number of bonus points that Saturday's protagonists can accumulate through their qualifying campaign.

Both sides recorded maximum five point victories in their opening two fixtures in the competition, but last week at the Cardiff Arms Park, the Blues were well on top of the visitors for most of the game, and eventually ran out winners by 24-14, outscoring their opponents by 3 tries to 2.

The Cardiff Blues will be defending a remarkable record in the Challenge Cup in Reading on Saturday. The Welsh Region never having lost a fixture in the tournament. In 2009-10 they were parachuted into the competition from the Heineken Cup, and went on to defeat Toulon in the final at the Stade Vélodrome, Marseille. They have won all three games in Pool 1 this season, to maintain their 100% winning record. London Irish have only played one match at home in Pool 1, when they scored 10 tries in thrashing the Italians from Rovigo.
