Nicky Robinson will reach 100 games for Cardiff Blues when they kick off their Magners League campaign against defending champions Leinster on Saturday.
Robinson made his Blues debut in September 2003 against Glasgow and has scored 623 points for the region.
And the Wales capped fly-half insists last season's Magners League runners-up are ready to go one better this season.
He said: "It's a nice milestone to reach. I've played at the Arms Park my whole career with Cardiff and the Blues so it's good to get my 100th game at home.
"It's a tough start for us and we always have tough matches against Leinster. But we would like to improve on last year having finished second in the league again."
Head coach Dai Young has included Wales star Jamie Roberts alongside Tom Shanklin in the centre with new signing Richard Mustoe making his debut on the wing.
Paul Tito skippers the Blues for the first time without injured quartet Tom James, Gareth Thomas, Xavier Rush and Deiniol Jones.
Cardiff Blues: B Blair, R Mustoe, T Shanklin, J Roberts, C Czekaj, N Robinson, J Spice; G Jenkins, G Williams, T Filise, B Davies, P Tito (c), M Molitika, A Powell, M Williams Replacements: G Powell, TR Thomas, S Morgan, B White, D Allinson, C Sweeney, J Robinson

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
