Davies is keeping his fingers crossed that the Scarlets can qualify via the backdoor
Llanelli Scarlets head coach Nigel Davies will be a Cardiff Blues fan for the day when they face Toulon in the Amlin Challenge Cup final in order for his side to resurrect their Heineken Cup ambitions.
Having failed to qualify for the Heineken Cup through the Magners League, the Scarlets would earn a reprieve if the Blues beat the French giants in their May 23 showdown.
A Blues victory would mean all four Welsh regions would feature in next year’s Heineken Cup and Davies admits their rivals triumph would put the disappointment of missing out on qualification through their domestic competition firmly behind them.
He said: “It'll be tough but if the Blues do us a favour by winning the Amlin Challenge Cup final, then that's good news for us.
“We will be watching them in the final and we wish them all the best.
“We would have preferred to be in a position where we were in control of our own destiny with regards to qualification for the Heineken Cup and not reliant on other results.
“But it will be a tough one against Toulon in Marseille in May.”
