Blues fly-half Nicky Robinson has underlined his determination to haunt future club Gloucester by leading Cardiff to victory in the EDF Energy Cup final.
Robinson helped the Blues book a Twickenham showdown with Gloucester on April 18 after a hard-fought 11-5 semi-final victory over Northampton at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.
The 27-year-old Wales international will swap the Arms Park for Kingsholm in the summer but insists there will be no divided loyalties when Cardiff and Gloucester go head to head for a third time this season.
"It is quite ironic how things work out but I owe all the boys here and just want to pick something up," Robinson said.
"Hopefully Dean Ryan (Gloucester director of rugby) will see why he signed me and maybe chuck a few more zeros on the end of the contract!
"It was a big decision but I felt like I needed a new experience and it was great to have an offer from a club like Gloucester.
"Leaving Cardiff when things are going well was always going to be difficult but I think with Gloucester I am moving to a side that is looking for silverware and to win things.
"Hopefully they will still be looking for that silverware next year."
Should Cardiff overcome Gloucester they will end a nine-year trophy drought since winning the Welsh-Scottish league title back in 2000.
