Davies reckons Owen Williams can become a centre of attention for the Blues
Cardiff Blues remain confident they can fill the void left by departing Wales centre Jamie Roberts.
The three-time RBS 6 Nations winner played his last game at the Arms Park on Saturday and signed off in style with a late try against Zebre ahead of his move to France.
Roberts will undoubtedly be a loss to the capital city region but director of rugby Phil Davies insists the Blues have the talent to fill his sizeable boots - pinpointing former Wales Under-20 star Owen Williams and current incumbent Cory Allen.
"Jamie's loss is disappointing but it will give others an opportunity here to fill the void," said Davies.
"Opportunities open up for other and that is professional sport.
"Cory Allen and Owen Williams are two young centres who have huge futures in the game.
"Along with Dafydd Hewitt and Gavin Evans, we also have experience to play alongside them."
Allen, who starred during Wales Under 20's Junior World Championship in South Africa last year has continued his impressive form in both the 15-man and seven-man codes of the game.
The 20-year-old was an integral part of Danny Wilson's Six Nations squad and he has since become one of the shining lights in Paul John's Sevens team.
Williams has featured more for the region but has found himself predominantly on the wing.
But Davies sees the Aberdare-product's future in the midfield and he reckons he could even be a dark horse for Wales' summer tour of Japan.
"We see Owen as a 13 in the future and he has played well for us this season," added Davies.
"It is a case of needs must for us this season but playing on the wing has been a good experience for him.
"He came in at 13 against Toulon with only half an hours notice and did exceptionally well.
"I would have thought he would be in with a shout of the Japan tour."

Wales head coach Warren Gatland is expecting 'one heck of a game' when his side tackle England at Twickenham on Saturday in the RBS 6 Nations. He believes whoever wins the game, could go on to win the championship.
Wales head coach Warren Gatland sticks to an experienced side to face England at Twickenham on Saturday where he says his side are approaching the RBS 6 Nations clash as a 'final' - if they win against the red rose brigade on Saturday then they are in the driving seat for the Six Nations title.
Wales speedster Luke Morgan has bounced back from injury and burst through the 50-try barrier for Wales on the Sevens World Series. This weekend in Las Vegas he is hoping to inch near the all-time Welsh record held by Tal Selley.
The WRU has enlisted some of the biggest names in the game to launch the next phase of its Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme for community coaches at all levels - just like this one hosted by Duncan Jones.
Wales scrum half Rhys Webb scored twice as the Ospreys came from behind to keep alive their hopes of reaching the European Champions Cup with a 40-27 win over the Blues in the opening game on Judgement Day IV.
Judgment Day IV had broken every attendance record in the history of Welsh domestic rugby before a ball had been kicked at Principality Stadium today and Welsh Rugby Union chairman Gareth Davies had two things to say to the 68,262 supporters who turned up to show their allegiance to their national sport - 'thank you' and 'please come back soon'.
