Cardiff Blues coach Dai Young has his money on defending champions Munster to top Pool 4, though he hopes is side can further dent Leicester’s hopes this weekend…

The Blues are out of the running for qualification, but he wants his team to lay down a marker for the future by going to Welford Road and winning.
 
However he knows the scale of the task and believes Leicester still have a chance of progression in this season’s Heineken Cup, either as group winners or more probably as one of the best two runners-up.
 
“We’re out of the Heineken Cup, we’re honest enough to say that, but we’re a proud bunch and we would love to go to Leicester and turn them over and obviously we want to win our home game against Bourgoin,” said Young...
 
“We may be out, but you cannot afford to take your foot off the pedal for two weeks and expect to regain the momentum.
 
“We’re moving the right way as a team. 18 months ago we could not have been talked about in the same breath as Munster or Leicester – now we’re up there competing.
 
“Leicester can still challenge in the group but my money would have to be on Munster. Leicester have been written off in the past and proved people wrong and they can still go through, if not as winners then as runners-up.”
