Nicky Robinson admits "a few tears may be shed" if Cardiff Blues are crowned European champions this season.
The Wales international Robinson is likely to experience some strange emotions should Cardiff lift the Heineken Cup in Edinburgh next month.
Despite the Blues reaching their first Heineken semi-final since 1997, Robinson has already pledged his future to a club whose season ended amid crushing anti-climax five days ago.
The fly-half's summer move to Gloucester is through his desire for experiencing a different challenge, culture and domestic competition.
But while Gloucester contemplate a campaign that produced a 50-point EDF Energy Cup final defeat against the Blues at Twickenham, an early European exit and failure to reach the Guinness Premiership play-offs, Robinson finds himself two victories away from becoming a Heineken Cup winner.
"It was a decision I made because I wanted to experience playing somewhere else," he said.
"All I wanted to do was improve my game. I thought going and playing in a different league, a different culture, a different environment would give me that extra push and help my game move on a little bit.
"Obviously, when I signed with Gloucester everything looked pretty good over there.
"You can only control what's in front of you, and that is out of my control what happens over there.
"The squad of players they have got is still up there with the best in Europe. That was one of the reasons for going there, and I am sure they will be back to where they should be next season.
"I am definitely enjoying my rugby at the moment and playing close to my best.
"It is awesome we've won one trophy already. We have been through the darker days, and it's great that we can now enjoy the good times.
"I have been here a long time, and the club and the region means a huge amount to me. It was a big decision for me to leave it.
"I just want to make the most of every opportunity and enjoy every game I've got left with the Blues now. We are in a very strong position in Europe and have given ourselves a chance of reaching the final.
"If we go on to win the Heineken Cup in my last game, then who knows, a few tears may be shed.
"You don't get many opportunities to get to a Heineken final, and that is what we've got on Sunday."
As head coach Stuart Lancaster polishes the axe he will soon wield over his World Cup training squad, Exeter Chiefs coach Rob Baxter has backed Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie to be given a stay of execution.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
