Toby Flood has said that he is looking forward to an East Midlands derby in the Aviva Premiership final.
The Leicester fly-half told Sky Sports News: "A lot of us live on the border between Leicestershire and Northamptonshire and there's a real mix of fans there. There's a real buzz about the game so it's great.
"We expected it a couple of years ago when Saracens ended up beating Northampton at Franklin's Gardens so it's nice that it's come full circle and we've got an East Midlands derby.
"Obviously the last couple of trips to Twickenham have been disappointing. We haven't done ourselves justice but credit to the teams we played, who played well on the day and deserved it."
Tigers have appeared in the last eight finals, while Northampton will make their debut appearance.
