Fly-half Nicky Robinson has scored 656 points for the Blues in 120 games
Fly-half great Jonathan Davies believes Cardiff Blues number 10 Nicky Robinson has played himself into Lions contention for their South Africa tour.
The 27-year-old inspired the Welsh region to a an EDF Energy Cup triumph over Gloucester and into a Heineken Cup semi-final against Leicester Tigers.
Davies thinks Robinson should join Ronan O'Gara and Stephen Jones when the Lions squad is announced on Tuesday.
"Nicky Robinson has played himself into contention," Davies told BBC Sport.
Lions coach Ian McGeechan has not ruled out taking players to South Africa who are not current internationals and Robinson has not played for Wales in almost three years as the last of his 12 Wales caps was in Argentina in June 2006.
But Davies believes the Cardiff-born fly-half should be one of McGeechan's shock left-field calls for the summer tour against the world champion Springboks.
Davies, the 37-times capped former Wales fly-half, believes O'Gara of Ireland and Welshman Jones should contest the Lions Test team.
Davies' Lions call for Robinson
But Robinson should join Wales' James Hook and England pair Danny Cipriani and Toby Flood in the list of number tens McGeechan should consider prior to the big announcement to take place at a hotel near Heathrow airport.
"At number 10 there are two in Ronan O'Gara and Stephen Jones who are definitely nailed on," said Davies.
"Then you have Cipriani, Hook and Flood but if one guy is on a roll at the moment it is Nicky Robinson.
"Cipriani is playing ok, Hook hasn't played much and Toby Flood is injured and Sam Vesty is playing for Leicester.
"It would be a big call by the Lions coaches to pick Robinson but O'Gara and Stephen Jones are similar types of players."
Robinson's game-management was hailed in the Blues' 50-12 demolition of Gloucester in the EDF Energy Cup final showpiece at Twickenham on Saturday - their first piece of silverware as a region.
