Cardiff Blues' Backs and Attack Coach Gareth Baber says this weekend's European games offer a great opportunity for the regions to restore some pride to Welsh rugby, after the whitewash suffered by the national side in the autumn internationals.
Baber declared 'all four regions are going to be looking for results to show everybody Welsh rugby isn't in as dark a place as everybody thinks it is.'
The Blues host Montpellier on Sunday lunchtime, with Scott Andrews, Lou Reed, Sam Warburton and Alex Cuthbert back in the side. They are also missing a raft of key names due to injuries suffered on both international and club duty, though.
