Sam Norton-Knight insists he is ready to make the Blues number ten jersey his own following his arrival at the City of Cardiff stadium.
The Wallaby full-back has been asked to fill the void left by the departure of Wales fly-half Nick Robinson this summer.
And while that may appear to be a gamble by head coach Dai Young, given that Norton-Knight has not started in the position for two years, the New South Wales playmaker is unfazed by the challenge.
Norton-Knight said: "I've always been a 10 and I left Sydney out of frustration that I wasn't being given a lot of opportunities there. So that's where I want to play for the Blues.
"Like anything, it takes a little bit of time to adapt to a different role, but my skills as a footballer probably suit the 10 position more so than 15.
"I have always tried to bring good distribution and a good kicking game to my play.
"At 10, your bread and butter is your catch-pass and your kicking game. They are the two areas I really pride myself on and see as my strengths."
Norton-Knight has big shoes to fill in hometown boy Robinson who guided the Blues to the EDF Energy Cup title as well as the semi-finals of the Heineken Cup last season.
He said: "I watched the European semi-final while I was in South Africa with the Waratahs.
"The Blues were really unlucky to lose and their results have been exceptional over the last year or so. A lot is spoken about the pressure and expectation on the team, but that's not dissimilar to where I've come from.
"Now it's about putting your own stamp on the club and that's what I hope to do."
