Cardiff Blues director of rugby Phil Davies is trying to remain positive after their 59-22 demolition at the hands of Leinster on Saturday.
The heavy RaboDirect PRO12 defeat saw the Blues leak nine tries to leave the region on a run of five successive losses in all competitions.
Davies is remaining upbeat however and believes there is light at the end of the tunnel as they look to recover after losing several senior players.
"I am not going to give up, not after nine games," he told Wales Online.
"Nobody is putting any context on this. Everybody knows where we are with the situation.
"We have lost an incredible amount of experience. These young fellas are standing up and trying things.
"Lots of them are in different positions to where they were in the squad before. They have been pushed to the front.
"We've just got to keep working with them and keep pushing on.
"They have plenty of ideas and plenty of determination and we keep looking at ways to improve.
"It's not pleasant at the moment, but better results will come."
