Cardiff Blues put an indifferent start to the Guinness PRO12 season behind them last weekend, when they began the European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool stage with an emphatic victory against the play-off chasing Top 14 club, Grenoble. A 5-try victory gave the Blues a maximum 5-point return, and leaves them joint top of the Pool after the opening round of matches.

On Saturday. the Blues travel to the Stadio Mario Battaglini, Rovigo to face the amateurs of Femi-CZ Rugby Rovigo, who themselves were battered in Reading last weekend by London Irish. Although the Italians managed to score two tries of their own, their line was crossed 10 times, and each try was converted, to leave the final score 70-14 to the Exiles.

The Italian side have managed just three wins from 55 European fixtures that they have played over the years, and it would be a major surprise if the Cardiff Blues do not emerge with another 5-point hail. The Blues have something of an amazing record in the Challenge Cup, having never lost a match in the tournament. Their only previous participation came in 2009-10, when they were parachuted into quarter finals of the competition from the Heineken Cup. They went on to beat Toulon in the final.
