Northampton prop Soane Tonga'uiha is fully focused on Saturday's Aviva Premiership final against Leicester.

The Saints head for Twickenham as underdogs despite toppling Saracens in their semi-final - but boast a star-studded front row with Tonga'uiha, Dylan Hartley and Brian Mujati.

The giant Tongan told SaintsTV: "I'm sure I can speak on Brian's behalf as well when I say that we didn't want the semi-final to be our last game for the Saints.

"The boys were right behind us for that game and a lot of guys stepped up and led from the front.

"It was a massive achievement and something I really enjoyed. It's full credit to the squad for that performance and hopefully that's something we can repeat on Saturday.

"I've always said that once we get into the knockout stages anything can happen and we've proven that in the semi-final as well as in the past. Come the final though you've got to put the past behind you again and focus on what's in front of you for the 80 minutes.

"I'll be fully focused on Leicester and I'm sure the rest of the boys will be exactly the same."
